Hi,Dear Nuala, I am pleased to hear about the information you have posted as I didn't know anything about my grandfather. My mother rang me this morning and said that you will email me. I hear that you have contacted my brother Ralph Ballinger. It is interesting to hear that we have relatives in America. Your uncle,Michael,my father's brother Bernard,also went to live in America but he didn't have any children. Have you done any research on his wife? Look forward to hearing from you.
