The General's Chat Room


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:
With the retirement in Australia of Pamela Goesch and Lionel Fowler after approximately sixty years spent researching the true descendants of General Joseph Holt, Bernadette (Ber) Holt has offered her research services to our chat rooms. We would all be aware of and appreciate Ber's amazing family research abilities. The Holt Family Fellowship researchers are extremely lucky to receive such a wonderful offer. Most of us understand the tremendous work that this involves. The Holt Family Fellowship has accepted Ber's offer with our deepest gratitude. It is fitting that our family research in our chat rooms will now be based in Ireland.

The Holt Family Fellowship reserves its right to restrict this generous service if necessary. Our chatters are reminded of the principles of "fair dealing".


The following instructions have been written to help those chatters unfamiliar with the process.

I am afraid I have been away from this for a few years but I am still in Arizona, USA and thought about Gen Holt as I have a call today with someone who has connections with Powerscourt and it brought back memories of my trips to Ireland especially the 1998 reunion. Wishing everyone health and happiness!
