Happy St Patrick's Day!

Okay, I'm not Irish.... at least not much that I know about.

I do have one Irish branch on my family tree.  Her name is Joanna Barrett and she likely immigrated to America  sometime in the 1840's.  I have written previously about Joanna and her daughter Joanna (the younger) and the genealogical challenges they present to me.  You can read these women here and here.

It's possible I (we) have more Irish heritage than I have found so far.  The Haley line may actually turn out to be of Irish origins, but I am a long ways from figuring that out.

Enjoy the day!
