Very informative. Give enough information for one to fall back on with genealogical research. Thanks for writing the book! Amazon Review

From the Author

Finding family stories, even ones that are more than one hundred years old, is a lot of fun. I've learned that my great, great Orr grandfather had a fascination with bees (and now his ggg grandson does). For years I saw a photo of my Rooney grandfather (who died in 1931) in overalls, but I was an adult before learning it was taken because it was one of the first times he'd worn them. (And he was about 50.)

Two great aunts were the first of "my" Orr women to get college degrees, and they taught many of their nieces and nephews in one-room Missouri school houses. One of those nieces later got a Master's in education and taught hundreds of children in the same town--but long after one-room schoolhouses were gone.

I also found my Rooney grandmother's brother was a fireman in Ottumwa (I'd been looking for him for years). Because he lived in the area called Smokey Row, I also knew he met the Irish stereotype for liking to bend his elbow.

So, get out from behind the computer and talk to people. It's fun to learn more than what's in the census data. Your parents and grandparents heard a lot of stories. Talk to them before you can't.
