We also have Burke's in my family but in my Mother's generation.My mother's sister Ruth O'Connor married Dan Burke son of Daniel William Burke and Margaret Roach.
Daniel William Burke was the son of James Burke and Julia O'Grady.When my cousin Kate went back to the townland where William and Julia were born she had a big surprise.Kate related that she looks like everyone in the town.
She was walking in town and looked at one man in particular and summoned to courage to talk to him.He was directly related and of course she was asked to dinner.
While I was in Ireland whenever I turned up family, they fed me till I ached.But, now I have more information and want to go back to Ireland as well as Cornwall, England with a stop in the Isle of Man.
Have you ever gone to "walk in grandma's footsteps"?
