Curtin Clan Gathering 
Twenty nineteen

A Poem by Marian Curtin 


A tree has roots

In the ground

Family has roots

In their DNA

And genealogy

The roots of

A splendid tree

Can go back

Many hundreds of years

DNA can go back to the start of time

Genealogy can be a journey

Of fact finding

Puzzle solving

And a great tale

That we can find

Along the journey

Of finding our families roots

We can make

Many friends

In our journey of genealogy

A journey of finding our past

In whom our kin folk were

Where did they come from

And where did they go

To eek out a living

In what part of the world

Did they settle

To raise there families

Carrying with them

There music culture and song

The Curtin Name

Is in many parts

The world over

But the Curtin hubs

Are in four Counties

On the beautiful

Island of Ireland

Cork, Kerry,

Limerick and Clare

In the province

Of Munster

Remember

As you all gather

For the

11th Biennial Curtin Clan Gathering
April 11-14, 2019

Enjoy your time

As family

And Cousins in Genealogy

W

ome to the
 Curtin Clan! 
 
Many of us enjoyed sitting around the table listening to stories from our grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and cousins.  Many of those voices are now silent, yet our yearning to connect with the generations before us is still strong.  The Curtin Clan offers the opportunity to connect with stories that help us better understand our history.  

An important benefit of joining the Clan is connecting with Margaret Curtain, our genealogist.  She has collected a wealth of information from buying up thousands of documents for Curtin families worldwide since 1977. She is a founding member of the Clan, and was presented the insignia appointing her as a Companion of the Order of Clans of Ireland (CIOM) by the Irish vice counsel at the Chicago Gathering in June 2011. 

 

Another benefit is connecting with our DNA project coordinator, Dan Curtin. We have a number of Curtins who have participated and this will help expand your genealogy research.  We have quarterly newsletters and will have our next gathering in Williamsburg, Virginia in Spring 2019

.

 (Health to the men and may the women live forever!)
