Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.

About Our Family Research
The object of this home page is to be a clearinghouse for any information I'm able to obtain on the families of my grandparents, three of whom were dead when I was born in Chicago on March 4, 1945. My paternal grandfather was Patrick O'Grady of Westport, County Mayo, Ireland (born c. 1890); my paternal grandmother was Sarah Gary of Newport, County Mayo, Ireland (c. 1895-1931) ; my maternal grandfather was Wilmer Hyland Howard of Ohio, USA (c. 1890-1935); and my maternal grandmother (the only one alive at my birth) was Alice Maud Walker of East St. Louis, Illinois (1897-1985).
