  Hi Listers,

  If you have ever considered visiting the "Oule sod" to chase up your =
long lost ancestors, do a bit of research, or visit the family homestead =
or some long lost graves, then next year could be one of the best years =
to choose.  Some of you may have seen the BBC programme on Monday =
evening highlighting the role of the Hamiltons and Montgomerys as the =
precursors of the later and larger plantation when they arrived in =
Ulster in 1606. The point was ably made on numerous occasions that, =
perhaps for the first time in 400 years, the political climate in =
Ireland is conducive to a mutual appreciation and celebration of this =
and subsequent events by "both sides of the house", as it is often =
termed here in Donegal.  The same is even truer of 1607. =20
