Gleasure Family (from Listowel, Co. Kerry) Letters On Line

Post #: 32
Descendants of the Gleasure Family (originally from Listowel, Co. Kerry) have created a blog where they are posting hundreds of family letters written between 1897 - 1955. The letters were sent from the Gleasure Family to Frank Gleasure, who emigrated to Massachusetts, and from Frank's son George (killed on D-Day) to his father during WWII. I've just started to read them, and they offer a wonderful glimpse into the emigrant's life and the lives of those left behind. You can view them here:

The blog is still a work in progress so it will be updated often. It's truly a labor of love - and how wonderful that, through today's technology, we can all share them.
