Familia: Ulster Genealogical Review is the journal of Ulster Historical Foundation's membership association (an historical research co-operative, known as the Ulster Genealogical and Historical Guild). Each year, in December, members receive Familia and a directory of their research interests, entitled Directory of Irish Family History Research. Non-members can purchase copies of these books. Since 1985, Familia has set a consistently high standard of balanced articles of wider historical and biographical importance, and providing all-important practical advice on sources for Irish family and local history in the nine-county province of Ulster. This issue of Familia contains the following articles: The James Bones Family Circle: a United Irishman's southern American heritage (Katharine L. Brown) ‘Take the Current When it Serves’: Did the rebels of north Down and the Ards miss their opportunity in 1797?(Harry Allen) Bound for Hobart; Ulsterwomen Convicts and the Great Famine (Trevor McClaughlin) Memento Mori: the seventeenth-century monumental inscriptions of west Ulster (William Roulston) The Exempt Jurisdiction of Newry and Mourne: the struggle for episcopal authority (J. Frederick Rankin) A southern Irish family and a few northern links (L. R. Carew) Captain John McBride of Ballymoney and the early settlement of the Falkland Islands (Emma Jane McAdam & Jim McAdam)
