Tracing Roots

I have wonderful memories of Ireland. My sister took me over one year and we arrived on my birthday. We began with a tour that showed us so much of the beauty and history of the country. Then we stayed with our Religious for another week. We were able to connect with some of our wonderful relatives in the Lightholder family and they still owned the farms on Lightholder Lane outside of Dublin. We search for my maternal grandfather's family history and found many McLaughlins; my paternal grandmother was a Murphy so we did not even try to trace her family. It was such a joy though to know so may Lightholders and see family traits.
