I began looking for my maternal grandfather's birthplace in Donegal, Ireland. (Still looking!) Went on to my grandmother's Polish family. Then to my paternal Rooneys, also from Ireland, who settled in Vermont. My paternal Griffins, from County Kerry in Ireland, settled in Canada. My deepest regret is that I didn't begin this search when I was much younger and had more relatives to query. When I used to sit under the tree with Grandpa, why didn't I ask then in what townland he was born? Why didn't I write down some of the stories Grandma told me as we sat on the front porch in the evening? I want to find as much information as possible so my children and grandchildren will have much deeper roots than I felt were mine.
