My Journey Through Genealogy

The past has been a place of fascination for me for as long as I can remember.  The Ladybird History Book series were among my earliest reading material.  The ruins of the Cistercian Abbey, just down the road from my home in Baltinglass, was somewhere to explore.

The first pedigree I remember seeing was of the fictional Forsyte family from John Galsworthy’s novels, then being dramatised on television.  Watching the series I figured out how to read the pedigree.  And then I turned my attention to my own family, royal families and the families of my unfortunate neighbours!  My genealogical curiosity had no limits.

The Tree of Men

Gorry Research Identity

The Tree of Men is the Gorry Research emblem. It was adopted in 1987, suggesting a family tree made up of figures based on ‘The Man’, the symbol of St. Matthew, from the Book of Durrow. This Durrow, in County Offaly, is where Paul Gorry’s earliest known Gorry ancestors were buried, and Matthew was a name used in several generations of the family. The new emblem is a remodelling of the earlier one, based on variations on ‘The Man’ by a young artist.
