The General's Chat Room

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.

29th Mar 24 21:54:11 Jonathan Laird I'm replying to Daniel Fowler. Yes I have a copy of the Holt Family Tree book
10th Mar 24 08:48:19 mary byrd Hello all, I was in Ireland for Christmas and New Years. I was able to go by the stone in Roundwood dedicated to Joseph Holt. (I was last there in 1998 when it was dedicated.). There is a sign on a main intersection in Roundwood pointing the road to it but it is pretty easy to pass it. The writing is illegible now due to weather effects.
Because I live in a town in the US that is looking to have Blessington IE as a sister city, I have been in contact with a Liam Cullen who is a council member in Blessington. It turns out he grew up in Roundwood and knows Holts there. by email he said he would try to see if there are any stone masons or other who could re-do the stone marker.
Glad to see there are still familiar names on the chat room. I have been away from doing genealogy research for quite a while but recently cousins here have asked for information so I will need to get files more organized!

25th Aug 23 12:59:01 Daniel Fowler G'day fellow Holt family members. After a number of attempts over the past years to put together my own family tree on, I thought this would be the best place to find a detailed family tree that has already been established. Would one of you here have a link or a copy of the family tree. I do recall a number of years ago I was shown a book that had been published which had the family tree already put together, including what number ancestor we were. Does anyone have a copy or know where I could get one? Thank you.
