In 1997 I joined the Nolan Clan family organisation (aka Clan O Nolan) and began in earnest to research my own Nolan family ancestry and, over time, that interest grew to encompass all Nolan families wherever they may have settled.
Already as a young child I was fascinated by the stories passed down by my Nolan ancestors and wondered about my relatives left behind in Ireland those many years ago.
In 2004 I assumed the duties of Newsletter editor for the Nolan Clan family organisation and began publishing article after article on Nolan family history, in an effort to gain an ever deeper understanding of Nolan family history.
In 2017, after divesting myself of the duties of Newsletter editor for the Nolan Clan, I began refocusing my energies towards the writing of an updated Nolan family history and revamping the original 2004 vintage website.
In 2020, the original 2004 hand-coded NolanFamilies.org website was successfully re-implemented as a WordPress website and information in the old databases successfully ported over to modern-day “Knowledge Bases” (Family Stories, Memorials and Research Notes) with a much-improved the user interface.
By 2026, barring delays for health reasons, I hope to have written an updated Nolan family history book and have set up a sustainable work process for generating on an ongoing basis articles/information tidbits for this website’s knowledge bases. This is also when I would hope to divest myself of webmaster duties for this website and leave it up to the next generation to continue uncovering more about our rich Nolan family history.
Also, getting on in age and sensing that my days as webmaster for this website are numbered I will gladly welcome any Offer to help manage this website.
