Since writing my earlier posts on John George Dunlop I’ve had descendants of members of the Dunlop family contact me. George (as I believe he was known) must have been a prolific writer. Letters have turned up from Australia and Ireland that he wrote to family members, along with more poems that he wrote and additional photos of him.
I’m back after too long without any posts. I had an eventful 2016 which included two genealogy trips, the second to the UK with my mother. We visited Donegal and Belfast in Ireland at the end of August on the trail of our McKnight, Gregg and Dunlop families from Raphoe in County Donegal. I also visited where the McFaddens (on my dad’s side) were from in County Armagh but more about them in another post.
