1. Appeal from Hebrew Nations
We hesitated a little before sending out this message. Some time ago I was advised not to request funds for Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations but to depend on the spontaneous response of those who become aware of us. We receive our funding through the sale of publications or from contributions. Most of the time, even when publications are selling well, we need additional offerings to meet expenses. At present the sale of publications is very low. In the future this may change.
Anyway, like any and every other organization and enterprise, we need money to function.
It happens on occasion that without asking we receive sufficient offerings. It also happens that even after asking urgently and repeatedly we receive relatively little.
Most of the time however after asking we are sent offerings. We hope this is one of those times. This apparently is what Divine Providence wants for us at present.
It is also wanted for you: Each and every one who can gives us something to keep going should do so. This will bring them a Blessing from on High. It also actively involves those who give in this enterprise.
Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations stands for Three Rs: 1. Research; 2. Revelation (leading to Recognition of our findings); and 3. Reconciliation between Judah and the Ten Tribes.
The Three Rs: Research; Revelation; Reconciliation.
We work at this and we get results. We gather facts, put them together, come across insights or receive them ourselves, put out information and inform whosoever wishes to know of these truths. The Lost Ten Tribes as recognizable entities today are primarily amongst Western Peoples. This knowledge deserves to be made known. Those to whom it pertains need to know it. Ultimately it strengthens the bond between the Jews and Ten Tribes. We work for both Judah and Joseph. We are able to do so because we wish to and due to Divine Providence enabling us to. You should do so as well by financially enabling us to do so.
We are badly in need of funds and hope this appeal will be responded to.
God bless you all,

3. New Article. Irish Exit
Differential Emigration: The Case of Ireland
... Irish emigration was mainly to the USA, UK, and Australia. The sources below suggest that in the west of Ireland there once existed a warrior class who were relatively better off than the rest of the locals but not as well as other Irishmen to the east. On average, they were larger in body, more redhaired, and more fair than the others. After the Irish Great Famine (1845-52) this element was no longer as prominent as it had formerly been. Evidently a disproportionate number of them had left Ireland and emigrated.
...there evidently was a difference between those Irishmen who left and they who stayed behind. This difference was reflected in physical, geographical, social, and perhaps also tribal terms. It would seem that the same happened all over Europe. In Britain we have noted elsewhere
(see Joseph, ) that they who left for those parts of North America that became the USA were often from distinct areas and social classes. We identify them with groups from Manasseh whereas they who stayed or went elsewhere were from Ephraim. In Germany too, they who left were different physically, socially, politically, and temperamentally from those who remained. In this case we identify they who remained as non- Israelites. In Germany there were differences not only between they who left and the rest but also amongst the emigrants: The ones who went to South America, etc, were different from they who headed for the USA. Similar observations may be made for other parts of Europe.
