Welcome to the Curtin Clan!
Many of us enjoyed sitting around the table listening to stories from our grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and cousins. Many of those voices are now silent, yet our yearning to connect with the generations before us is still strong. The Curtin Clan offers the opportunity to connect with stories that help us better understand our history.
An important benefit of joining the Clan is connecting with Margaret Curtain, our genealogist. She has collected a wealth of information from buying up thousands of documents for Curtin families worldwide since 1977. She is a founding member of the Clan, and was presented the insignia appointing her as a Companion of the Order of Clans of Ireland (CIOM) by the Irish vice counsel at the Chicago Gathering in June 2011.
Another benefit is connecting with our DNA project coordinator, Dan Curtin. We have a number of Curtins who have participated and this will help expand your genealogy research. We a quarterly newsletter. Our nexr Gathering is in the planning stages for 2024 in the United States.
(Health to the men and may the women live forever!)

The Curtin Clan Newsletter is one of the ways created by our founder, Neal Curtin, to further the Mission of the Curtin Clan. The quarterly issues feature stories about Curtin families, past and present. It is where Members may share their family milestones and achievements. There are articles about life in Ireland and its history and updates to the Curtin DNA Project.
The quarterly Newsletter is provided to Clan Members via our Message Board - CurtinNews@groups.io. An Archive and Index of all issues since 1999 are also available on the same site.
