Over eight years in the past, in December 2011, I suspended the Scottish GENES weblog so as to widen the scope of the information protection I used to be providing, with a separate weblog British GENES (later The GENES Weblog) established in parallel some months earlier. On the time one other blogger (thanks John!) amusingly referred to the transfer as ‘blogicide’, however in actual fact the readership transferred and continued to develop over time.
On this identical interval, nevertheless, there was a dramatic change in world circumstances, and as we transfer forwards on the earth on the day after Brexit, I wish to regain management of the message of the place this weblog is coming from – it is from an Irish genealogist and blogger who has made his residence in Scotland, with a fascination in his two areas of curiosity, Scotland and Eire, but additionally in our closest neighbours in England and Wales and throughout the EU, and to Scotland’s and Eire’s historic and persevering with worldwide disaporas.
