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 have quarterly newsletters and will have our next gathering in Killarney, County Kerry, Ireland in 2021.
(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, only available to Clan Members, is accessible to the Members via our CurtinNews@groups.io Message Board. An Archive and Index of all issues since 1999 are also available on the same site.
A Timely Poem from
To view more of Marian's poems
BE SAFE STAY HOME
I love you
On this day
When you may be alone
Lost in your own thoughts
Afraid of the moment
We all fear
The world unseen
We cannot see it
Only its effect
On our fragile world
In its many cultures
To battle it
Our medical workers
In all roles
From the cleaners, carers
To the highest doctors
In all the lands
It has hit like dust
Across the world
Our role is simple be safe
In our love and kindness
Our sadness and sorrow
To stand together
We are told to be apart
Go do something else
To freshen the soul
You know in our time of high anxiety
The mind is full of worry
But the soul needs nourishment
And quite time
This is where love is most powerful
By being safe
We are in a storm
How long the storm
Is in our hands
What is asked of us
We will reach calm waters
Sending our love
Across the world
We are strong
We will carry through the storm
With our hearts as one
All over the world
