Going into the New Year not only did I make a connection with a relative in
Australia through FerGold but also learned more about some ancestors in Iowa
thanks to a very kind lady on the list, Margie, who did a look up and found a
detailed obit and probate record for my great great aunt. Before this I had
only my g-g aunt's birth date, married name and that she had emigrated from
N. Ireland to New York to Iowa. I now plan to research the branch that
emigrated to Iowa in the late 1800s while some of her siblings settled in other
parts of the US and a few remained in N. Ireland.
