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.

Ber and I used to take charge of the Ancestry List, but she lost her access a few years ago and now I've lost mine. We just can't log in anymore to edit it.

Hope everyone is coping well in these trying times.

7th Mar 20 23:45:32 Mike Pierce I have not seen any communications from Bernadette Holt in Ireland. Is she still in charge of the chat room?
5th Feb 20 03:05:47 Carole Parkes You'll probably need to copy and paste those links into the address box of your search engine.
5th Feb 20 03:04:08 Carole Parkes Some Avoca parish records are on line here

Other records here, but you need to know which parish you want
18th Jan 20 06:18:03 Carole Parkes Lee, if you scroll down the page to the very bottom, on the right, you can search for your Mary Grattan(a?). Or use Ontario as your search word. We have a few Holts in Canada.
7th Dec 19 04:34:37 Lee Larkin Does anyone have information on the Holts of Ontario Canada? Anthony Holt and Mary Grattona nd their children, Thomas, William, Martha, Elanor, Mary Ann and Samuel? I am related to Thomas Holt from Mornington, Ontario.
5th Sep 19 07:45:33 Carole Parkes Please ignore the previous post. This same Joseph Holt, painter, is still in Blair St in the 1841 census, so cannot be Joseph Harrison Holt. My error.
