Sean,

I don't see that it is the responsibility of Dennis Ahern to report
everything he finds. Surely it is best just to read the excerpts in the
spirit of enjoyment and if there is anything relating to an ancestor or
relative, that is (or would be) a bonus..

Regards, Aileen Howard from cool but sunny England (searching for Irish
ancestors)
