Successful Findings – Joe and Marsha Geraci
“My Irish Heritage comes to Live”
My dream was to visit Ireland and then my DNA showed I am Irish. I started working on my Irish roots but after months of research, I hit a wall.
Marsha Geraci knew that her family of Duffys came from Dublin everyone told her that the Russell side of the family came from Belfast. Confused with this and off course the lack of evidence with the genealogy records in Ireland she turned to the Team at My Ireland Heritage.
Seán and the team set to work straight away discovering and unearthing the most brilliant off records. He was able to identify exact locations for my Family and even found the Russells who also came from Dublin. Our Business is built on each Project being a Journey Seán told Marsha and how right it was . It appears that with the devastation in 1922 off many records sceptism comes into peoples heads but the Team at My Ireland proved that the Family can be found and also that when you use a Genealogist like Seán they will not stop until they are satisfied they have gone down all avenues to bring the evidence to you.
In Joe Geraci own Words
One of the many fond things accomplished due to Sean’s help was finding information on Marsha’s 3x great grandmother – Ellen Russell Duffy. Ellen came from Dublin in 1847 with family and settled in Covington, Kentucky across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Marsha did not know anything about Ellen until we did ancestry work online here in the USA before our trip to Ireland and then more information found by the Team of My Ireland Family Heritage. It was just a great personal story for Marsha and she wanted to find out more.
We search library records here in Cincinnati. Many records had been destroyed in Cincinnati fire. We did have brief info on burial at an Ohio cemetery and finally were able to find an unmarked grave. Marsha wanted to honor her 3x great grandmother so we had a headstone made and installed on the grave.
“We combined our Visit to Churches graveyards with the Tour of Dublin see One Day Tours Seán as a Government Certified Tour operator knows his History and we were amazed how the Dublin off our Families in the Liberties off 1832 was brought to life by Seán” said Joe Geraci.
