Reading the Irish Central News online has led me to many interesting stories and information helping me learn more about my heritage, i.e. NY Irish Center and this group.
Researching and finding out about a family members life, learning about what was happening in their area when they lived there, and completing a timeline for the family is very rewarding.
It's important to learn of the grandmother I never got to know. She wasn't spoken of, yet is part of me. I will honor her by getting Irish citizenship, a gift she gave me. ( Accomplished Oct. 2015 Now an Irish citizen. Thank you Grandmother!)
I am so glad that I came across this group. Bridget is a great organizer. Looking forward to other meet ups.
