Vrrooomm!!! Vrrooomm!!!

An early "Wordless Wednesday" entry for you, sponsored by some favorite cars in Small-leaved Shamrock history...

This 1952 Studebaker owned by traveling salesman Charlie Stanton (beloved husband, father and grandfather; favorite uncle and great-uncle to many):

This 1956 yellow and white Pontiac, first car of the eldest daughter of George & Anne (Cowhey) McCue (photo taken in 1958 in Hicksville, New York):

For more family car photos (and stories, too!) see The love of fine cars: it's in the genes and A ring, yellow roses & a Flying Cloud over at 100 Years in America, or visit the 45th edition of the Carnival of Genealogy whose theme is Cars as stars!

A Wordless Wednesday entry (such as this one, which I've posted early on a Tuesday just to confuse you!) is a picture that speaks for itself without a lot of description. The picture may be one whose subjects are not yet identified or whose story is not fully understood. If you have any information about the subjects, date or location pertaining to the above photographs, please post a comment or send an email and share what you know.

Hi Lisa,

Love your blog. What a family history! I am involved in something that might be of interest to you.

The SEVENTYMILLION Project is a social project to find, map and connect the Irish diaspora worldwide. There are, it is said, 70 million people in the world who claim Irish heritage. Our project is an attempt to find this community and explore what Irishness means to them.

The project is not about Ireland. It is about Irishness and all that Irishness means to people of Irish heritage worldwide. We have created a map at www.seventymillion.org which we hope will act as a central location for this discussion and exploration. We've set up a blog there to let people know how the project is going.

We'd love your help in getting the word out there about what we are trying to do. Simply go to our site, and have a look around. If you feel it's something valuable then add yourself to the map and profile your Irish heritage. From there you can invite other people to join the project. Or, you can just tell your friends and relatives about the project.

We hope that, with each person we contact, we get a little closer to our goal of finding, mapping and connecting the seventy million Irish people worldwide.
