I started this process of finding where my family is from several months ago with one goal in mind - be able to tell my father exactly where he came from. My dad is one proud Irish man and I wanted to tell him exactly where in Ireland his ancestors were born. This journey has taken me to places I could never have imagined and I am but an infant in this vast world of research. I am so overwhelmed I have decided to take this research out of my head and computer and onto the big screen where I can hopefully compose my thoughts into one giant blog and I can finally follow my train of thought in this process. I know want to travel to places I never even thought of to find homes, graves and records to add to my research so I can hand my father a gift. The exact location of where his family originated.
