I am an artist, accountant and author living in western New York, transplanted from Denmark, Michigan, Florida, West Virginia, Pennsylvania (in that order!) I love the beauty of the world and sharing it with others through jewelry, photography, digital painting and writing.

  1. I watched this video and was fascinated by much of what was said. There is a name in my family tree, McGrother, that is supposed to have come to Ireland from Scotland in the Plantation of Ulster, according to one line of thought. Others say it goes as far back as the ancient Kingdom of Oriel and is an old Monaghan name from way before the 1600’s. I think it’s the latter, as the Monaghan McGrothers/McGroders are Catholic and it would be unlikely that Protestants coming to Ireland in the Plantation of Ulster would subsequently convert to Catholicism. Now you can see why I was so interested in that lecture. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
