                               Genealogy Report

A NOTE ABOUT THE IRISH 
                                    
It is  common knowledge that the Irish - even the well educated - have been notoriously "carefree and careless" spellers.  Apart from this just being their way, this was often a deliberate way of separating Catholic from Protestant or Catholic & Protestant joining to confuse & elude the British tax man.

Added to this, many times place names are spelled phonetically - even in officical documents.  This really confuses things.

For example, in this ancestry, Elizabeth Somerville's stomping grounds show as follows:
                        Drimaleague - Catholic
                        Dramaleague - Church of Ireland
                        Dromaleague - civil records
                        Drumaleague - civil records.
Add a "d" - sometimes but not always - to any of the above if searching in the 1800's:
                        Drimdaleague
                        Dramdaleague      
                        Dromdaleague
                        Drumdaleague.
Phonetically, the "gue" is silent and often dropped entirely giving:
                        Drimalea or Drimdalea
                        Dramalea or Dramdalea
                        Dromalea or Dromdalea
                        Drumalea or Drimdalea.
Or still phonetically, the 'g' and the 'e' are dropped and the 'u' remains as the final written letter:
                         Drimaleau or Drimdaleau
                         Dramaleau or Dramdaleau
                         Dromaleau or Dromdaleau
                         Drumaleau or Drumdaleau.        

I have seen all these variations on this town alone.  Mixed in with poor or hasty penmanship,blotty old ink pens plus a huge hatred for completing any civil forms for the crown, what should be a simple or straight forward search becomes quite a hunt.

The hunt continues~
