"Floreat Arbor" - our quarterly newsletter
"Floreat Arbor" - Flannery Clan Newsletter . . . ISSN 1649-1386 . . . Dublin, Ireland; quarterly since 1999
An informative quarterly newsletter entitled "Floreat Arbor" is issued to all subscribing members of the Flannery Clan around the globe, and helps to keep everyone abreast of research development and social events. Regular features include a topical editorial; progress reports on membership, archives, gatherings, website; and special features on items of specific interest to members.
The newsletter takes its name from the motto on the coat of arms granted to Sir James Flannery. The Latin motto "Firmitate Coeli Floreat Arbor" means "May The Tree Flourish In Heaven"; and "Floreat Arbor" or "May The Tree Flourish" is a reference to both our genealogical endeavours, ancient roots, and the continued success of Flannerys worldwide.
Issue dates are the first of February (Spring Issue), May (Summer Issue), August (Autumn Issue) and November (Winter Issue). Members are encouraged to contribute items of news for inclusion. The copy deadline for receipt of contributions is one month prior to issue. The Winter quarterly includes an annual Research Supplement which lists the individual research interests of all of our members. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only research directory in the world which is specific to Flannery / Flannelly research!
In addition to individual quarterly issue to members around the globe, every ten issues are bound together as volumes and donated to designated libraries, societies and local heritage centres as a record of our research and activities.
