Arthur Robert Edmond Holt - my Great-Grandfather

"And I do hope you do the DNA testing! I'm still trying to confirm that Arthur is, in fact, my father. I'm 99% certain based on my mother's recounting and backed by info Jean had. But it would be nice to confirm it definitively.…"

Arthur Robert Edmond Holt - my Great-Grandfather

Kieron, great to have you aboard here. I'm hoping you might share, as your time allows, some of your family history here, which I've always found fascinating.

I'm delighted that you're providing such detail about the Irish. I'm trying to flesh out their contributions on this side of the pond. Visit my blog www.theirish-americanstory.com, when you have a few moments.
