New York, NYUSA
June 16, 2012
I searched Meetup and found it very quickly.
My grandparents would not discuss much of their lives before they emigrated and I enjoyed finding some of their history via the 1901 and 1911 censuses. I also located their Ellis Island records. I can trace back to my great-grandparents and I would like to see if I can go back a few more generations. I found my grandmother's house In Ireland and I would like to search for my grandfather's.
I live and work in NYC and I am very interested in genealogy and culture. My kids, who are now young adults, grew up with music, dance and language lessons.
This was my second event and I'm looking forward to more.
