They may well have changed the rules but I don't want to shut down avenues of contact. It might be me with the subscription someday waiting for someone else to contact.

I’ve been doing some more research on famine-era emigration (concentrating on Irish) to Canada. Although names, etc., are missing for that period, there are some good overall figures and comments in the official reports.
Here is a snippet from a report on Quebec 1854:-

"The number aided in their emigration from Ireland was 2963, viz., 61 male, 2591 female adults, and 311 children, being an increase of 1,559 of the same class of persons, sent out in 1853 They were from 58 different Unions, chiefly from the South and west of Ireland.

This class of our emigration continues to give great satisfaction, and, notwithstanding the large number who have been sent out during the past season, complaints of misconduct have only reached me against two, the South Dublin and Cork Unions, and I regret to say that the conduct of a portion of the females from the Dublin Union, has been anything but good. 26 of the females from this Union have been committed to the Montreal Gaol, as loose, idle and disorderly, and from a report received, 12 of them have been committed twice, and one for the third time. These girls were all offered to be forwarded into the country settlements, where they would have at once obtained employment among the farmers, but they refused to leave the city, preferring a life of idleness and vice, to that of honest industry."

Brazen hussies from South Dublin!

I've just tried to log on to Irish Genealogy and have got a blank screen with this message:

You have been blocked because of a suspicious activity. We are aware of that.

Has anyone else got this message?

I've added over 100 people to my family tree this week through 2 DNA links, who turn out to be related to each other and descend from a sister of my gg grandmother. Absolutely chuffed, particularly because one of those people only responded on my third attempt in 2 years and I had correctly surmised which part of the family she must come from.

Does anyone else get a weird security message when they click on the recent thread about findmypast?


Perhaps it is my anti-virus being over enthusiastic.
I get the following message:

No, works for me just fine. Did you click on a link in there or just the thread?

It's strange. It is only that thread and I get it whether I go in through the list of recent posts, or for example by clicking on pinkypinky and then clicking on it in a list of your posts.

I wonder is it maybe because of an ad on that page? I have ads switched off, so can't see what ads are displaying on it.

I might post this for the admins to have a look at.

I reported it. Mark says it has happened before and is caused by someone having an image hosted on raptr.com in their signature (or something like that). Anyway, he is looking at it and my computer is not going to blow up (today).
