2013 promises to be a great year… Posted on January 6, 2013 by Anne-Marie Smith ….for Genealogy here in Dublin, and throughout Ireland. The Gathering 2013 takes place here and there will be lots of people tracing their ancestors back to Ireland. A lot of untold stories out there waiting to be unfolded. I am currently working on a family tree that is worthy of an appearance on Who Do You Think You Are!! It has so many twists and turns, unsung heroes, rogues, religious controversy and an ancestor who was in prison! Very exciting not just for the genealogist but also for the family themselves. It definitely proves that the saying “it’s in the genes” applies to most families, as characteristics, traits and physical resemblances all appear through the generations of a family. Happy New Year!
