We in The Wild Geese social network, now 13 months old, are experiencing a swell of interest and passion in exploring Irish ancestry among our growing membership. No surprise, considering that we as a community have already produced thousands of pages of content -- articles, photographs, video and audio links, and events -- all with one overarching purpose -- to better understand, and celebrate the extraordinarily rich Irish experience.
Our newest initiative from The Wild Geese, ‘Uncovering Our Irish Ancestry,’ aims to encourage collaboration between our members and consulting experts as we plumb and share our collective experiences, to help us better chronicle our families’ colorful and distinct Irish histories.
In the days and weeks and months ahead, fellow Wild Geese members will generate and share articles, family trees, research, resources, discussions, tips, and input from genealogical professionals. With this, we fully expect many members to pursue, and overcome, the obstacles that keep us from identifying key individuals, and incidents, in our family histories.
