Starting Sept. 30, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
This research all began with my mother telling me one day that she had information that should never be forgotten. What started as something I stored away because I didn't know what to do with it has become a passion.
From a few names dating back to the early 1800's our family tree has grown into something I could never have imagined. The journey has been frustrating at times but mainly exciting. I've met, spoken with or exchanged emails with a wonderful bunch of people that I never would have had the benefit of meeting otherwise.
Our tree covers many, many names but most of my frustration lies with finding our ancestors from Ireland. I'm sure there are many other researchers out there with the same problem. Hopefully, I will be able to travel there one day to poke around.
I would be most happy to hear from anyone who may have additional information and I'd be more than happy to share what I have.
