Irish Origins: Transatlantic Migration North America to Britain and Ireland 1858-1870
The only surviving ships' passenger lists for ships returning to Britain and Ireland from North America between 1858 and 1870. Because of the threat of an uprising in Ireland, the government required that ports in Britain and Ireland submit their incoming ships' passenger lists. These records were deposited at The National Archives of Ireland and are not available at the UK National Archives. The Index contains all details recorded on these documents as well as lists of ships and details of their voyages. Over 42,000 names are recorded most of whom were of Irish, English or Scottish origins."

I was seriously thinking of paying the £47 for annual membership
or is it better to pay a joining fee of £10.00 and an annual subscription of £40.50, for Society of Genealogists - Membership which includes:

"We have a selection of the records held in the Library accessible on the Internet. Look at the County Sources in the Library. And members of the Society can access the Society's data online via free access to The Origins Network for one contiguous period of 72 hours each calendar quarter."

or an annual subscription £12 and (1, 2, 3) surname(s) at £12 each. Guild of One-Name Studies:
"A one-name study is a project researching all occurrences of a surname, as opposed to a particular pedigree (ancestors of one person) or descendancy (descendants of one person or couple). Some 'one-namers' may restrict their research geographically, perhaps to one country, but true one-namers collect all occurrences world-wide. The Guild only accepts true one-name studies for registration, although anyone with an interest in one-name studies is welcome to become a member."

I learnt a lot about genealogy from the GoONS both on and off line but got more contacts from my own web pages on Rootsweb WorldConnect and on blogger:-
