In Reply to: Ahern website updates by Dennis Ahern of 387

[sent March 17th]

Today is March 17th, St. Patrick's Day. It was on this date in 1998 that
I set up the Ahern website. Since then it has had over eighty thousand
visitors searching for information about Aherns. Also on this date,
according to the Records of Canadian Aherns Who Served in World War I at
Patrick O'Hearn was born in 1895 in Tipperary, Ireland. His exact date of
birth should perhaps be taken with a grain of salt. Many Irish did not
know their actual birthdate and it was not until they applied for
citizenship, or enlisted in the service that it became important. Many
Irish Catholics simply chose St. Patrick's Day as their official birthday.

The Ahern obituary page has now passed the 4,400 mark. The earliest new
obituary is for 1-year-old Elizabeth Jane, youngest child of John and
Laetitia Ahern of Wellington, New Zealand, 25 January 1886. The most
recent new obituary is for Commander Liam Ahern [Royal Navy and Irish
Naval Service] of Cobh, Co. Cork, 11 March 2011.
