Helping with the Website

If you are interested in helping out with building and improving the archive of Nolan-related information found at this website I invite you to

or to communicate directly with me by Email or by regular mail (see below). As an incentive to help, those who volunteer to help will be provided with access to a “Gold Mine” of information (a private online repository/knowledge base of information) ready to be “mined” for Nolan-related information to be published as articles in the websites three public knowledge bases, namely Family Stories, Nolan Memorials and Research Notes.

A read through my write-up on current website initiatives ( i.e. Archives 2025, Nolan Book 2021 and Family Treetops 2021 ) should give you some idea of where you might be able to help out.

Although the main role played by this website is archival in nature, the website also serves as a landing spot on the Internet for the Nolan Clan family association founded in 1995. At this point, however, only basic information about the Clan and its activities is provided here (e.g. membership application, etc.).

Nolan Book – 2021

2021 will mark roughly 100 years since the time when Fr. John Nolan of Kirkcubbin began documenting in manuscript form his understanding of Nolan family history. This is essentially the understanding reflected in the Nolan book “O Nolan – The History of a People” published in the Millenium year.

Recognizing the value of Fr. Nolan’s contribution in the 1920s and the need for a repeat of such an effort today, I am challenging myself to document for future generations the current – 2020s – understanding of Nolan family history in a freely-accessible online Nolan family history book.

A tentative title for the new book is ” The Nolans, a People from most Ancient Times to the Present” and you can already view online the online draft of the new book at this website (“history” selection in main menu). You can also Email me to provide feedback or to offer assistance.
