So Vi...you were Doodling Googling Schoodling??
GOOGLE is extremely useful for people researching their kin. The Advanced Search, using
key words, can be very rewarding! GOOGLE has some amazing
stuff on people/places etc and often better than church records.
One tiny reference ( I just found recently on GOOGLE) to a person actually tied family
lines in 4 counties together back into early 1700's, I 'knew'
they were connected (gut instinct) but just 7 words on GOOGLE clinched it!! PLUS I then
found 3 family obits (also via this GOOGLE reference) for
relatives in New York, inserted in newspapers mid 1800's by the families, which has
opened up a whole new line of research.
Now, while this may seem rewarding enough I actually contacted the church where the NY
funerals took place, they could not have been more helpful! The
Minister passed my email to a few of his parishioners, one of them resides in my kin's
old house, they have papers and stuff in their attic left there
by my kin and they are going to scan and photocopy some stuff for me!
7 words via your friend GOOGLE was all it took!!

I Googled "Mr Mrs and Miss Schoolding" Dublin. Quite a few hits. I tried to get
the link for one which is for the "Biographical Dictionary of Actors Vol 13 ROCHE to
SIDDONS" but the link was about 7 lines long. So if you google that you will be able
to read quite a bit about them.
Mr and Mrs S were in Joseph Ashbury's company at the Smock Alley Theatre Dublin in
My friend GOOGLE rarely fails me.
