Brendan Hamilton commented on Sarah Nagle's blog post From Paradise to Gotham ... Historical Novelists and the Irish-American Story
"Great insights and recommendations, Sarah. I well need to check those books out. I am especially intrigued by the recurring theme of Ireland as the lost paradise, and I've often wondered how much of that is the product of 20th century Irish…"

"The New York Mutt Sure, my Paddy credentials seem plastic, For the blood of a Yankee's elastic. I'm a Swedish McScot, More Italian than not, But 100% I'm sarcastic."

Brendan Hamilton replied to Katherine Ross Murphy's discussion Where do I start? in the group Irish Ancestry
"Hi Ryan, I'd be curious to learn more about your approach too. I've also tested on FTDNA but I've had trouble making sense of my results, due in part to how little I know about my Irish ancestors 4+ generations back. Most of the…"

Brendan Hamilton replied to Katherine Ross Murphy's discussion Where do I start? in the group Irish Ancestry
"I was in a similar boat when I got started. I'd suggest first recording everything you and your family members know about those grandparents (full names, birth dates, etc) and search for them (depending on their ages) in the 1940 and 1930…"

Brendan Hamilton replied to Ryan O'Rourke's discussion Original Records Are Rotting in the group Irish Ancestry

Brendan, Do you have a web site or blog that keeps log of your work on your novel? And your poetry books? I know we talked about it in a feed, but I can't find the feed with your information.

Brendan, Yes, you surely should have a web site and it would help with selling your current poetry book.. You could have a blog as part of it to write about your ongoing research. It generates interest and people do go to it to learn about your work. It does take time to put one together. My husband did mine and it is in dire need of re-vamping, but he hasn't the time and I'm thinking about finding a college intern to re-design one. You might think about that. It could incorporate interesting aspects of your writing experience. Thanks for all your help with my research. I would love to be on Wild Geese site more, but hunkering down with my novel is a necessity when I have free time. Also, I think I asked to friend you on facebook. Although facebook keeps me connected with people and family I'd never hear from, I try to use it primarily for my work.
