Your discoveries
”I’ve always wanted to visit Ireland, but was hesitant as I thought it would mean much more if I actually knew where this family came from before I went over. I had given up ever finding them but booked a genealogy tour anyway in April 2016. FindMyPast then released 10,000,000 new records in Ireland. I typed in my great grandfather, Michael Cranley, thinking that I would get the usual result – nothing. Not this time. There he was!”
