My daughter gave me a very lovely present. It started with her 5th grader needing some answers to family geneology. She had Harv's youngest sister send her some family info as she is the one in the family who has been doing it for years. Well she sent much more then Sue asked for and that got her started. I mentioned that I wished someone had done some on my Father's family as he came to Canada alone as a young man in 1925. The rest of the family was still in Ireland.
Well Sue went to Registry.com, paid the monthly fee and has just blown me away with what she has been able to find out. She found out tons of family info going back a few generations and also some interesting pictures. My Grandmother Susan McAleish died in Ireland of influenza before my Father left Ireland. I had never seen a picture of her until last Friday and Sue sent me this. She also found pictures of 2 of his sisters and my Father's sailing certificate when he came to Canada which also told us what ship he arrived on. We still have to find my Mothers certificate who came in 1925 with her family.
Well wouldn't you know that blogger will not let me download her picture so you can see her. Says it must be a picture or a file and cannot be downloaded. Since when can pictures not be downloaded?
Well all I can say is my daughter has made me very happy and when we get home this summer we will continue on with records that I have at home. I will have to see if Harv. can figure this out and then I will print it.
