A separate website myirishfamily is a personal family history website dedicated to the many individuals who are either direct descendants, or through marriage, connected back to Michael Heffernan, who farmed in the townland of Rathsillagh (Loraine), Kildare, Ireland in the late 1700s
The site myIrishfamily.ie is built using The Next Generation by Darrin Lythgoe, using a separate genealogy database created with The Master Genealogist™ from Wholly Genes Software™. Unfortunately Wholly Genes is no longer in business and I am currently seeking a replacement. The Next Generation is a powerful site-building package, with many themes and possible customizations. There are alternatives including Second Site by John Cardinal
The reason for picking TNG is not entirely straightforward. The website kildarehistory.ie is built using Joomla open source software. In spite of exhaustive searching over the last number of years there is no satisfactory or easy way of integrating a genealogy programme such as TNG or Second Site with a Joomla site. Other CMS packages such as Wordpress do allow for easier integration. However having working with Joomla for ten years and reaching a comfortable level of proficiency I did not wish to switch to a different package such as Wordpress.
