[In 1922,] The strong-room of the Public Record Office of Ireland, repository of the vast majority of administrative records of the island of Ireland from the 14th century on, was used as an ammunition store by the anti-Treaty side in the civil war. Hit by a shell fired by the pro-Treaty forces, the munitions exploded and destroyed all of the records. Only those few records in the PRO Reading Room at the start of the conflict survived.
From a genealogical point of view, the most significant losses were:
the surviving 19th century census returns,
about two-thirds of pre-1870 Church of Ireland parish registers
all of the surviving wills probated in Ireland.
What if somebody had nine names other than Bonds and Clemens and decided it was easiest to sacrifice them both? Take away the ballot cap and maybe they both get an extra vote.
There is no reason to think that Purdy, Noble, or other voters like them would have changed either their approach or their final ballot if the ballot cap was eliminated.
I don't know if that's true.
Jack Quinn, 247 (Slovakia)
He got his start as a professional in an unusual way. While watching a semi-pro game in Connellsville, the 14-year-old Quinn threw a foul ball back from the stands to the catcher, hitting his mitt right in the middle. The visiting manager, from the nearby town of Dunbar, was impressed by the throw, and he offered Quinn a contract.
