It just keeps me going in circles. How do I actually get to write a entry to the contest?

Based on recently reported security breaches for Facebook, I do not feel the security on that site is sufficient to warrant sensitive genealogy information. Consequently, I guess I am not worthy of entering your sweepstakes.

Ancestry.com has been exceptional on my father’s side (Canadian, English, French). On my mother’s side (100% Irish) there have been zero useful hints and record searches have been completely useless, despite the fact that I’ve added data for many, many Irish relatives going back to the early 19th century. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not unhappy. I just don’t like to see anyone mislead that the Irish records (including the newly available data bases) available at ancestry are particularly useful.

One topic that came up particularly helped me out. I have always been lead to believe that my Great Grandfather Ennis was Catholic and his wife was Methodist. He died very young and my Grandfather Ennis was place in an orphanage/school in Philadelphia, Pa. Since I have been researching them on line in the 1880 census their religion is given as Baptist. Also so far at least I have been unable to find the emigrant.
