Are You My Cousin?: Happy St Patrick's Day!

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

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!
