    I have copied several Original Church Records & many Rusks appear in them. Because of poor writing, the time lage etc I found that the name “RUSH” is frequently confused with “RUSK”. I have therefore entered both names in my copies of the Church Records. It is important to remember that the spelling of an ENTRY, either in LDS or in Church Records, is less important than many seem to imagine. After all, the Records were written by someone who may not have know the proper spelling of the people to whom the entries refer.

      Great point! I’m interested in hearing more about the Rush/Rusk families you’ve found in the Church Records – County Monaghan? I’ll send you a separate e-mail with an invite to a private Rusk Roundup site I’m using now.
