Today is a big day for me. A few weeks back, I received an email asking me if I would like to contribute to a new digi mag based on Irish research. I was super excited and honored to be asked to write for something that I was not a part of and for someone who I did not know.
I have written for myself on this blog a few years, I write over at The In-Depth Genealogist now and then and usually I have a monthly column as well. But, for someone to reach out and ask me to write about my Irish ancestors and my research, that truly touched me. So, I took a few days and compiled some of my posts here what information I have and wrote my article, which I titled Finding Ireland and sent it in to Irish Lives Remembered.
Today while reading my email, I read through my Y-IRL list and was excited to see that someone shared a new Irish digital magazine. Yep, for Irish Lives Remembered. I was super excited to see my words in print. So, while I was at a stop light I clicked through and found my article. Yay! It looked absolutely beautiful. The whole magazine does.
This month there is a 24 page section on Cork, which includes Irish genealogy resources. Those researching Irish ancestors can understand that any place that lists resources for your Irish ancestors, is a good thing to read. I cannot wait to dig into this.
Thanks again to Eileen, for asking me to write about my Irish ancestors and research. I was truly honored to do so.
