Clicking on the cover image above will take you to the fourth issue for 2016. The 2012-2015 tab above will take you to ALL earlier issues, which can be accessed FREE. Our August issue features another great photo by Christy Nicholas on the cover, and inside is an article by her, with more photos. There are many other great articles inside, as well, so it's time to get to reading the August Celtic Guide!
Come in, France!
We have networked around the world in an amazing way. Just look at this list – USA, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, South Africa, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Poland, Romania, Austria and France. It's crazy man!
We just added France! That makes contributions from 17 countries around the world. Go to our Free Music tab to hear a couple tunes from a French Celtic band called Oubéret, who will be featured in our October issue. Their new CD is fantastic, so look them up online. Meanwhile, enjoy a couple of their tunes while reading our August issue.
We will publish again this year in October and December. Our themes are posted in the current issue and on this site. Deadlines are the tenth of the month preceding the month of publication - for example September 10th for the October issue.
Of course, there is always the Facebook page with tons of postings there, too.
We are well over 18,300 Facebook 'likes' and would have many more had not Facebook tightened up restrictions on likes!
We receive anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 hits each month on this site, depending somewhat on the time of year. About half are unique visitors, and the other half, returning readers. The stats typically spike just as a new issue comes out. We have had over 200,000 total hits since we started four and a half years ago! Facebook hits double that amount, at least, so we are pretty well-read around the world.
All of our issues celebrate Celtic heritage, and all are available free using the tabs above, as well as the music you can also stream for free. We certainly hope you enjoy our completely volunteer efforts! We're still here, dedicated to Celtic storytelling.
We hope you enjoy the August issue in between your summer adventures and family outings, while holding tight to your love of all things Celtic. Meanwhile, we've done our part to bring family together around the Hearth and Home. The October issue is well on its way.
A group of school kids from Colorado sent along a story which has several genealogical sources listed below it, if anyone is interested in furthering their research. The link is:
