Family Tree Software

I'm looking into genealogy software for this site. One of the best ones that I have found that integrates well with this type of site (geeklog) is in use at The Dahl Family Site. Check it out and let me know if you think that it is worth while.

Family TreeHi Bill and everyone,

"Heritage and tradition are the threads that link us to our past and guide is into the future, one generation to another."

I have been interested in genealogy since I can remember. I for the last five years I have been actively trying to compile a family tree. As I have been working I have found I have names, some pictures, and a few stories. My father has now joined me in my quest. It has helped and I truly enjoy the trips to the cemeteries and his recollection of facts. (He is getting really good at computer skills)

It is amazing how fast recollections of grandparents fade. Pictures of family parties show a loving and happy time, the favorite aunt or cousin's name forgotten.

I would love to hear stories anyone can remember, not only of old folk lore but maybe you siblings or children.

A picture exchange is a great idea. I'm sure every family member has a picture they would love to see and have. Maybe together we can put names to the pictures.

Welcome to the Quarter Century Club !

Congratulations to Roger and Kathy Caron ! 25 years married as of New Year's Eve. One of the best weddings I ever attended - a real New Year's bash - Bob and Debbie's might have been better - but oddly, I don't remember much. I was told that I had a pretty good time.

The Curran name, and its variations, are popular throughout Ireland, most particularly in county Donegal in the northern province of Ulster. The name comes from the Gaelic word “corradh” meaning ‘spear’. One of the most famous Irish Currans was John Philpot Curran, a barrister and a nationalist, whose daughter was engaged to Robert Emmett.


From Kenneth: The surname Curran appears to be patronymical in origin, and is believed to be associated with the Irish, meaning,"Grandson of Corran", a diminitive of "Coiradh (spear). Different spellings of the same name original surname are a common occurrence. Dictionaries of surnames indicate probable spelling variations of Curran to be Corran, Currane, Kirrane, Curreen, O'Currin, Curren,and Coiradh. Although bearers of the old and distinguished Curran name comprise a small fraction of the population, there are a number who have established for it a significant place in history.

They include: Simon Curran(O'Currin) (d.1302), Bishop of Kiljenora,Ireland.

Charles Courtney Curran (1861-1942) American painter of "perfume of the Rose", still hanging in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., "The Breezy Day"' in Philadelphia, and "Mountain Laurel."

John Philpot Curran (1750-1817) Irish orator and Judge who was a member of the Irish Parliament in 1783.

John Joseph Curran (1859-1936) ordained a priest in 1887, he spent the rest of his life as Curate and Pastor in the coal-mining area of Pennsylvania. He became famous for his support of miners and thier unions.

Amelia Curran(d.1847) She practiced painting only as an amateur, and her portrait of Percy Bysshe Shelly was exhibited in the National Portrait Exhibition in 1868.
