Newly released Irish Needles tells story of Frampton’s Irish settlers

The independently published, three-volume series of books, Irish Needles, “provides the history and genealogy” of the Irish families who settled in Frampton, Quebec in the early 19th century. Author Dennis McLane, who lives in Idaho, is a direct descendant of the first Irish settler in Frampton, Andrew Murphy. Mr. McLane spent ten years gathering the stories, events, and information that he has included in his books. Published only a few days ago, the three volumes of Irish Needles contain more than 1,000 pages and the names of more than 13,000 people.

Volume I is about the History of the Frampton Irish. It follows some of the families from Ireland to Frampton. The appendix includes maps that plot the locations of the Irish family farms and a name index.

Volume II is a Genealogy Compendium of the Frampton Irish, Surnames A – K.

Volume III is a Genealogy Compendium of the Frampton Irish, Surnames L – Z.

The three volumes are sold separately and available on Amazon.com (not Amazon.ca). More information about Irish Needles, price, and shipping costs is available in the announcement.

    Well I would like to say that with the luck of the Irish I would need to purchase all three as there would very likely be an ancestor’s surname in Volume II and Volume III.
