Names in the popular database of Irish census records dating from 1901 and 1911 were mistranscribed by a Canadian archival and library institute, claims the London Times.

The Library and Archives of Canada (LAC) was contacted by the National Archives of Ireland in 2006 and asked to undertake the mammoth task of digitizing the information and data from the first two Irish censuses to be taken at the start of the 20th century, a massive genealogy resource for interested parties worldwide who wish to explore their family’s roots in Ireland.

Editor’s note: Paula Kennedy is among locals in Galway working on the Mountbellew Workhouse Project to trace the descendants of the Irish emigrants who traveled on board the Palestine ship to Australia in 1853. On board were 33 Mountbellew workhouse orphan girls. The project is trying to connect with as many of the orphan workhouse girls' descendants in Australia in the hope of telling the girls' stories, establishing where they came from in Galway and, hopefully, connecting with their Irish cousins.

With a lot of cutting-edge science, researchers in December 2015 published a study telling the world where that Irish heritage first originated.

By studying the 5,000-year-old remains of a female farmer buried near Belfast, and the remains of three men buried 3,000 and 4,000 years ago on Rathlin Island in County Antrim, archaeologists and geneticists now say they now know where the modern Irish people originally came from.

En talsmand for efterforskerne, der har gennemsøgt et sted i den polske by Walbrzych i jagten på tog og tunnel, siger nu, at intet er fundet.

Efterforskningsholdet har brugt tungt graveudstyr og har gravet dybt på stedet, hvor beboerne siger, at toget og guldet skulle være gemt. Der er brugt jordgennemtrængende radarudstyr, men foreløbig har udgravningen været forgæves.
