Ar nDuthcas Clann Newsletters

 

Ár nDúthcas (Irish for "Our Heritage"), was the newsletter of the Ó Dochartaigh Clann Association. Spearheaded by Patrick Dougherty of Michigan in 1982, there were over 60 issues published and sent to members across the globe for three decades. Other dozens of wonderful people over time served in various editorial and contributing roles to produce the newsletters. There's tons of information tucked away in them, which you can use to begin your researching. As with all secondary genealogical sources, best practice is to identify the primary source where the authors obtained their data, so future researchers can easily verify your facts. Throughout these issues, each a snapshot in time, you can see the development of our Clann Association and Reunion.

 

This collection of newsletters was provided for publication here by Ms. Joyce Dougherty, wife of the late Cameron Dougherty and daughter-in-law to the later Pat "Inch" Dougherty of Michigan to preserve the work they led and honor their legacy.

The O'Doherty Heritage website is designed to be your place for all things Ó Dochartaigh. Whether your name or ancestry is from a Doherty, Dougherty, Daugherty, Docherty, Dogherty, if your family used another spelling of our name, or if you're from one of our related Donegal families, such as the McDevitt/McDaid, McBride, McConlogue, or others–we welcome you to the O'Doherty Heritage website!

The vision of the O'Doherty Heritage is "Telling our story, uniting us together." This was the same vision of our ancestors, the Ó Dochartaigh patriarchs, when they established our Clan motto, Ár nDúthchas–which means 'Our Heritage'. Below are the goals of O'Doherty Heritage:

TELLING OUR STORY:

  • Share our heritage with our entire Clan

  • Research, document, & bring our history to life

  • Curate a digital Clan genealogy research library

UNITING US TOGETHER:

  • Encourage quality genealogical research

  • Promote clan identity and pride in our heritage

  • Facilitate communication amongst our clanfolk

 

This site is curated by Will Dougherty III under the direction of the Association of Ó Dochartaighs. ©2020 O'Doherty Heritage. Site Policies. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the site, answer your questions, or see you get involved! Email odohertyheritage@gmail.com.
