Although this email was not directed to me I have to say thank you Frank as your email
helped me understand a bit more of the JSTOR everyone keeps talking about.

Now sure if anyone has replied to your email. JSTOR is a repository of
academic and local history journals. It is not a database for searching for
'Irish Roots'. It is of interest to genealogists because you may find some
information relating to the estate where your ancestors lived or an
organisation they belonged to or some other relevant information. The
articles are wide-ranging and require you to search the journals. With
regard to Fermanagh, the Clogher Record is the annual journal of the Clogher
Historical Society. The Diocese of Clogher is the main diocese in
Fermanagh, but it also covers Monaghan, Tyrone and a small part of Louth,
Cavan and Donegal. Other parts of Fermanagh are in the Diocese of Kilmore.
The Clogher Historical Society has been going since 1953.
To quote from the Clogher Historical Society website, "A look through the
Clogher Record index shows a very wide variety of subjects encompassing the
Plantation, Gaelic families, the GAA, Unionism, the Linen Industry,
Landlords, Military history... the list goes on. The Society is also
conscious of the need to represent its geographical area and so you will
find articles on Patrick Kavanagh of Inniskeen in the east, the Bartons of
Pettigo in the west and the Parish of Donaghcavey in the north."
With regard to North Irish Roots, the journal of the North of Ireland
Family, NIFHS was founded in 1979 with the setting up of the North Down and
Ards branch. The journals, published twice a year, contain a wide range of
articles relevant to the pursuit of family history in Northern Ireland.

How far back to the records go for the Irish Roots. My Ginn and Guthrie
families go back to 1799 up to 1840. Thanks, Catherine
