A blog about the frustrations, adventures, brickwalls and ultimately rewards of someone searching for their origins. Some Irish (Shamrocks), Scottish (Shortbread) and Shenanigans (English) all mixed into one!

About Me

Hi there! I'm what you'd call an occasional Genie. I love all things family history. To date, I have traced my ancestry to Ireland, Scotland, and England (hence the Shamrocks and Shortbread, the Shenanigans was my idea!)

I hope to take you on the journey that I have undertaken in finding my origins. It's frustrating, time-consuming, sometimes expensive, sometimes tedious, and I love every second of it!
