Blog in Malay - On St Patrick's Day!


Blogger made an inappropriate suggestion to me..

I have seen no evidence of St Patrick's Day while out and about in Singapore today but thought I should not let the day pass without blogging as the ethnicity suggestions from my DNA tests suggest that I have a good bit of Irish DNA.

Ancestry DNA suggests that I have 51% Irish ancestry while FTDNA suggests my DNA is 86% from The British Isles (which includes Ireland). My traditional research suggests that I am more than 60% Irish so I do have cause to celebrate. In fact I can claim to have a Green Tree.

But let's get back to Blogger and that inappropriate suggestion. The people at Blogger think they know me well but today they suggested that I should blog in Malay. Here is the message I received when I logged in to write this post today.


Thanks for your interest, Blogger. As the only phrase I know in Malay is Selamat Datang, I think I'll pass on your suggestion and concentrate on tracking down my ancestors from Ireland.

Geneagoogling with GeniAus

It's only two weeks until I present this lecture at The Society of Australian Genealogists. A check on the website today has indicated that there are still spaces available. The course is open to both member and non-members.  Full details can be found here on the Society website.

I'm presently updating my talk. I just hope that Google doesn't make any radical changes to its product in the next two weeks.

A Kiwi Tree

On a recent visit to The Elms Mission House in Tauranga, New Zealand I came across this family tree.


There were also some family portraits on display at the property.


Should you find yourself near Tauranga I can recommend a visit to this well-maintained property that offers interesting guided tours.
