I’ve started the 14 day free trial on ancestry.com, and in the first two days I was able to get through my grandmother’s side of the family all the way back to 1740 when Capt. Robert Higgins of Dublin, Ireland married his wife. He lived to be 110 years old and one of his sons lived to be 100. The Irish are a determined people, that’s for sure. This is a great finding in the month of March; this St. Padrick’s Day will be an even better day than it already is!
