She uses the newly introduced Brownie camera and gets in trouble when gangsters don't want their faces known to the police. I hope you'll check it out. I've recently advertised the book on the Green Pages. I look forward to connecting with folks here who share interests! Here is my website if anyone is interested: www.cindyswriting.com…
. Most of my time is spent between caring for my family and running a small independent film company. I became passionate about Ireland when I began researching my families lineage.

Kerry, living in Kenmare since the early 1800's. I have visited Ireland every year over the last 5 and will be back in May 2015 once again. My genealogy research is in full swing with hopes of locating family members still residing in the area. I look forward to meeting many more amazing people with the same passion I have for this stunning country and its history.…
