Lisa has posted the 3rd edition of the Carnival of Irish Genealogy
over at Small-Leaved Shamrock. I didn't contribute this time because I couldn't come up with anything. It's a little harder when you don't spend a lot of time researching Irish ancestry. I think that the biggest surprises that I've had so far is that the closest thing to an Irish ancestor I've found so far is the family of the Rev. Nathan Ward's family. Her maiden name is Tamasin (or Tamsin) Ireland. Her father was Abraham Ireland. I haven't taken the family across the big pond yet as I haven't had a lot of time to work on either the Ward or Ireland lines. I'm working on lines that are closer to me before moving on to those for more intensive work. Lisa has also included the call for the 4th carnival on her post. I have a month to get inspired!
