“Irish Family History Journal” 2018
Download Article

The Irish Family History Society, established in 1984, is based in Ireland and has a worldwide membership. Every year the Society brings out a journal, full of informative articles. This year, in Volume 33, our own Jillian van Turnhout was asked to contribute an article. The title of the article – which has pride of place as the very first article – is “John Fenton Hudson, 1932 Captain Royal Dublin Golf Club, The ‘Missing Photo’ Challenge”.  In it, Jillian outlines the research she did on behalf of the Golf club to find a photograph of this previous Captain. All past Captains were remembered with a photo in a gallery at the club. However, John Fenton Hudson’s was missing. As he had been a life long bachelor, so there were no descendants to ask. After extensive investigations, Jillian was successful in finding a picture, which is now proudly hanging in the Captain’s gallery. Clicking on the picture will bring you to the Society’s website.
