My Brickwall Ancestor – John O’Connell

In spending time today reading AnceStories older posts and I came across one on blogging about our Brickwall Ancestors and why we do not put out all the information we have and maybe others will be able to help. What an idea. I know for one, I have mentioned mine here and there. But I have […]

COG – Our Ancestors’ Place of Worship
