Dia duit Amanda, I'm here. I know they said "Tá fáilte romhat" which means "you are welcome" Though I do not know what the " chun na" means, and the "Gaeilge" is Irish. ;-)

Niamh,

GMT is a time zone that runs through Greenwich, England. It is accepted around the world as a universal reference for time.

We ran all of our missions on GMT when I was in the military. It made it easier if the command was in Florida, for example, and we are were in Africa. As long as we were all working off of GMT there was no need to calculate time zone changes for communications etc.

This has NOTHING to do with Irish but I thought it might help explain GMT.

Le meas,

James

When I saw your name, Ó Catháin, I had to say something. I will introduce myself as Seán Ó Catháin even though my name is John Kane. Sorry this is off of your topic, but I am just starting Irish as well... I have made a post from time to time concerning the Ó Siadhail book.

Tomas,

No the chances are not good that I am your uncle... but yes I'm in Russia, I am origionally from the US, Denver specifically. As far as my geneology goes my family (the Kane's anyway) has been in NY, Montreal and before that we are not sure, but possible Armagh or Monaghan. We are6th generation immagrants... Just the usuall Irish-Amereicans, but very proud to be a Kane! Nice meeting you as well. I need to go for now...

Niamh, if you tell us your surname then or the surname of the person in your family with Irish heritage then chances are we can tell you which clan

I have very mixed heritage, and my Gaeilge surname might not be this, but can you find out what clan 'Silverman' is?

Go raibh maith agat.

That looks German to me, man. Maybe from " Selbermann". Would you happen to have any knowledge pertaining to your possible Irish roots? A grandparents or other's surname pointing in this direction?

I found this at Names.com about the surname Silverman...however, do not fret about what it might means in terms of heritage...for intance my last name comes from Scandinavia according to the searches on the web, but my family has been in Ireland since the Vikings first started to settle in Donegal.

I also am an American, first generation to be in fact...and I know how hard it can be for people in the US to trace their heritage because of the mixing of cultures. I hope this helps:

Silverman is a surname found primarily in Germany.

The Silverman surname is classified as of occupational origin, taken from the trade or profession of the original bearer.

In studying our archives we found that one of the earliest references to the family name Silverman dates back in history to the year 1412.

There is documentation related to many Silverman family members and we mention here Malke Silverman by way of example.

The colour Or (Gold) in the coat of arms of the family Silverman symbolizes Generosity and Elevation of Mind. It also reflects the hopes, ambitions and aspirations of its original bearer.

It is interesting to note that the Center's research historians have discovered that Silbermann is a variant spelling form of this surname.

Sorry, i am so late in responding, I had trouble finding the discussion board, there are so many now! Homework prevented me from having much free time too. Thanks again, this really helps. I do have some German heritage, so it might have come from there, but I am having troublr tracing my heritage. I have no idea where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sl‡n go f—ill
