Since I have been discussing such serious and lengthy topics recently, I thought I should insert a more lighthearted note this week. We Irish American family historians have a difficult task--ancestors who burned records, never put their true ages on the census, and named all their children Bridget, Mary, Patrick, and John. Give yourself a pat on the back for tackling such a difficult task and enjoy this snippet of my talk at the Gloucester County Historical Society in Woodbury, NJ (great group there--and a wonderful genealogy library that covers way more than Gloucester County).
