I have been fascinated by Irish history since high school. Ask a few of my friends, they’ll tell you of my obsession. It stemmed from wanting to know who I was, where my people came from. In hindsight, this was the beginning of my genealogical pursuits. Why Irish? Because, to be blunt, I looked stereotypically Irish. Paler than pale skin, freckles, light eyes and the strawberry blonde hair. This had to mean I was Irish. I just KNEW it.
In January, I set some resolutions for myself and my Life in the Past Lane blog. I am happy to report that I checked the #4 item, to attend a blogging conference, off my list!
