IGP UPDATES AND NEWS YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS

     I'm not one for making New Year's resolutions, mostly because I am not one for keeping them well. I do have one major resolution that I intend to keep this year, and that is to create and publish a book of my Irish family history. I've been waiting to find the location in Ireland for my Magee and Maguire ancestors, but I realize that research is never ending, and at some point a published book will at least preserve my family history to date. I am always telling my audiences at my presentations not to put off that trip to Ireland or that family history project, so it is about time I take my own advice. So, this year, I am announcing my genealogical resolution publicly, so that I have witnesses to ensure I get my project done!
      Happy New Year!
 I wish for major family history discoveries for all of us in 2012!
