  1. Hi there,

    A lovely blog, really enjoyed reading about more recent Staunton Family history. Always intrested in reading about how things unfolded for respective Staunton/McEvilly/Culkeen familys outside Ireland. Where are you based yourself? Is there a Quilietti family connection?

    P.S Thank you for referencing my own blog, and if i can make a small correction, your links for my page end in instead of .ie

    Anyhow, keep up the good work and thanks for referencing my own.
