Bio and Links
I have been interested in family tree research since I was about 11 yrs. old, and I was told that I had relatives in Ireland, but no one in the family knew their names or where they may live in Ireland. I started researching seriously when I was in my early 30's and I wasn't very successful because our family records were too recent to find any public information at that time. So I wrote to the small town where our family was from in Ireland, and told the Postmaster to give my family history letter to anyone who may be related to my family. He gave the letter to a cousin, who gave it to her aunt, who gave it to my grandfather's last remaining sister. She said it was like a miracle hearing from me, she had always wondered what happened to my branch of the family. She was 89 yrs. old and blind, so she dictated letters to her daughter about the family and she mailed them to me. She died at the age of 91 yrs. I was thrilled to have so much information after knowing absolutely nothing about them. I was able to meet many of the relatives in 1988 at a wedding and I was able to jog their memories for even more information. I work on my family tree nearly every day.

Find A Grave #102795740 appears to be a duplicate of a memorial entered much earlier. Since she is your grandmother, there is a chance the memorial can be transferred to you.

We are going back this week, so we'll double-check the info we got. I'll print up your message and show it to the guy in the office if we can't find it. So good to know it actually exists!
