Eighteen years ago I started doing genealogical research; my dad was an orphan and we had some stories but no real knowledge of his family. I am mostly Irish though I have Scots, Italian, French, and maybe Cherokee ancestry. Last week I discovered my great gr gr gr grandparents marrying in 1846 in Naas, County Kildare, Ireland. Irish records y of are hard to find because there was a fire that destroyed many of the government records. So if you do not know the county your ancestries are from it is very hard to do any research; in fact county really is not enough you real need parish.
