77. Nice to see so many O'Haras in one place. Looking for descendents of Christopher O'Hara who lived in London around 1820. Web site: O'Hara Family Info (http://www.oharafamily.info/authenticate.asp).

78. Hi James,
My oharafamily.info web site (http://www.oharafamily.info/authenticate.asp) is a site for all people who are related in some way to my family which of course includes the O'Hara side. It has details of births deaths and marriages going back to the 1801 for the O'Hara's and many years before that for some of the other family names. I don't charge a fee, so I'm not trying to solicit any business by using your site. I just want to find more of my distant relatives. My ancestor Christopher O'Hara was transported to Australia in 1830. He later married in Australia and I am one of his decendents from that marriage. Christopher left behind a wife and at least 4 children in London. Our family has very little details about his first family and what happened to them after he was transported.
Thanks for putting a link on your site for me.

79. Hello to all the O'Haras everywhere !
My name is Patrick O'Hara. I live in Edgeworthstown (Mostrim) in Co. Longford, Ireland. My grandmother was Christine Kent. I think my father's people were from Sligo or Mayo. Anyone who knows anything about them please let me know. Some of my grandmother's people went to America back in the 1800s. Anyone who knows anything about us please let us know.

Subject: Letter of Admiration to Maureen O'Hara
You've always been my #1 favorite actress of all time and the only one, as there are no others! My favorite men actors are some of your leading men in the movies of yester-year, ie., Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Anthony Quinn, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, and the man that played Buffalo Bill Cody with you in one of your movies, as his name escapes me at this moment. It often does from a head injury I endured years ago. I do know his name and it disturbs me so much, as I feel ashamed I forget his name. The only living male actor I care about is Sean Connery. Ms. O'Hara, you are still so beautiful for about an 82 year young women and 60 year old women should only look half as pretty as you! Could this forgetful man I can't think of have a first name of George? This really bothers me. Please forward this letter on a print-out to Ms. O'Hara. How does George Montgomery Sound? I think I just remembered his name. Ms. O'Hara, may you reach at least the age of 102! As if I recall, it was the age of your late husband's, General's mother's age. When I think of you often, my heart skips a beat! May the Good Lord always be with you for years to come!!
A Lifetime Admirer,

84. "Maureen O'Hara in 2002", from June Beck
Just wanted to extend a Happy New Year greeting from Maureen and myself and remind you to watch Larry King love tomorrow night 1-2-03 (check local listings for time). This is a new interview. Being invited back to King's interviews is quite a compliment.
The year 2002 was quite a busy one for Ms. O'Hara. She wound down 2001 last December by guesting at the "Christmas Box House" charity in Salt Lake City and an appearance in NY for "Miracle on 34th Street" special screening; January brought the sadness of the loss of her dear friend, writer/director David Swift.
On March 15th, 2002 Maureen appeared at the Irish Fair Foundation in Los Angeles to received their Irish American Celebrity of the Century award and that same month was featured in Irish Connections magazine (on the cover as well as a comprehensive story of her life and career; April found her in Oklahoma City at the National Cowboy Museum Hall of Fame to M.C. the Western Heritage awards.
Between appearances Maureen was kept very busy doing commentary for both Disney and Artisan studios for their new collector's editions. In May the Disney's "Parent Trap" was released, followed by Artisan's "Rio Grande," and "The Quiet Man" The very unique features of the latter two DVD's is that the enhanced audio provides Maureen's narration throughout the entire film.
Maureen was most happy to be able to spend her summer 2002 in Glengarriff, County Cork, Ireland after being away for 2 years. After the loss of both her sister, Florrie and brother Charles during those preceeding years it had to be a welcome return to family memories.
In December, 2002 Maureen returned to the New England Air Museum http://www.neam.org/ to host a special event promoting their new video of historic aircraft, including General Charles Blair's "Queen of the Skies" seaplane. Many fans have purchased that video through the museum website and have reported that it is a terrific documentary. Maureen spent several hours autographing the videos for guests.
I will try to get a page published yet this week that incorporates this reflection of Maureen's activities throughout last year with graphics. I know I have probably forgotten some events, but will add to that page as my "senior" memory dictates.
As far as 2003, I have heard nothing in regard possible movies in the works and as reported earlier, her autobiography is due for a 2004 publishing date. There will be an article published in the Aviation & Business Journal newspaper (I believe it is the John Wayne Orange County Edition - exact area publication and date will be provided on my cover page when available)- article written by editor Di Freeze. There will be a large layout on General Charles Blair, his aeronautic history, and Maureen O'Hara.
My best wishes to you all for the happiest of New Years. May you and yours be blessed with good health and inner peace.
God bless, June Beck.

88. Dear email@example.com,
I would like you to add more of my family to your O'Hara directory. I am Tom O'Hara, the oldest member of seven children whose second youngest is Catherine, the Canadian actress. If you are interested I can tell you moreabout my family (parents, cousins, siblings and children).

89. What a wonderful site !
I learned so much about my background and was surprised to see my grandfather-Eliot O'Hara-listed here and here. He was quite a man and prominent in watercolor. He married Shirley Putnam the daughter of Herbert Putnam the Librarian of Congress for over 40 years. My father Desmond O'Hara (Eliot's son) was a public health educator (1925- present) now retired. I own a business Farmhaus Inc. at http://www.farmhaus.com
Actually there were four brothers of the O'Hara clan related to Eliot. All were of some note. Dwight O'Hara was the President of Tufts New England Medical Center and Dartmouth's Medical School. Fitch O'Hara was a Lt. Colonel in the Army (WWII); Skidmore O'Hara was also a Lt. Colonel in the Army (WWII).
Happy St. Patricks day to you and I hope you can add us to whatever databases you are keeping. Thanks so much and again for maintaining this site. I learned so much about O'Haras--- it made me want to go to Ireland and I am buying tickets next week.

Searching: Robert E. O' Hara, Elizabeth O' Hara, Mary Elizabeth O' Hara, Elizabeth O' Hara
Please explain to me how I can access which site the listings are in via your data base. I can see where the people I have listed are *on* your data base. But for some reason that I haven't quite figured out I can't get to the listings of the site. Please help
Kathleen Donnelly California via Belfast, Co. Antrim
Webmaster's Reply: Dear Kathleen,
Access to the datebase is through http://oharas.com/persons. The links on this page generate - in addition the main table of all persons in the database - tables of persons selected by geographical location, Irish county or country of origin and dates. There is a search facility near the top of the page which allows you to formulate queries yourself; for example by selecting surnames you could look for families intermarried with O'Haras. Near the bottom of the page there is a link to the ‘O'Hara Genealogy Forum’ whose entries are the source of the data.
If I understand you correctly, your searched for your O'Haras and found the tables in which they are listed, for example for Mary Elizabeth you might have selected forenames from the pull-down menu and entered %Mary, Elizabeth% - note that I have separated double forenames and forenames followed by an initial with a comma. You would also find Mary Elizabeth under GA if you search locations. I guess your problem is finding the detailed information on say Mary Elizabeth. Well according to the table listing her this is entry number 907 (which in this case is your own message) at the ‘O'Hara Genealogy Forum’. At the bottom of the database main page you will find a link to this forum; the link is also at the top or bottom of the query pages. When you click this link you get the complete listings of all the messages posted so far. There is a "jump to box" at the top where you should enter 907 and click "go". The link is: http://genforum.genealogy.com/ohara/all.html.
I wish you success in your search for your O'Haras !
