Their diverse stories and experiences will paint a robust, struggling and hardworking family that believed in what America could be for them - a land of opportunity and new hopes.
I realized with the passing of my oldest brother how much I did not know my family - who they are, what character traits, what hopes - and how much I want to get to know how I relate to them in blood and character. This genealogy project of mine is going to stretch to the far reaches of Ireland, Italy, Germany, and possibly a few other unknowns yet to be discovered.
