I love stepping outside the norm (for me) to learn. Today, someone posted a link on the Cork Genealogical Society Facebook page for a 10 minute clip about the potato blight, or the Great Famine. Whatever you decide to call it, I am fine with it. But always remember this, we can learn from many different places and You Tube should be on that list!
Below is a video that gives a lot of information about the famine in just one area of Ireland, with heart wrenching music by Sinead O’Connor.
