Irish Ancestors January 28, 2016

Shamrock Symbol         Irish Immigrant

My Irish credentials – I lived in Dublin for the first 44 years of my married life,

I am married to a man born and bred in Belfast Northern Ireland

Some of my ancestors came from Ireland – to name one, Alexander Trimble who emigrated from County Donegal at the age of 22 on May 20 1849 – at the height of the Irish Famine.  Alexander Trimble was my 4X Great Grandfather
