In this delightful, sometimes funny, sometimes wistful memoir Patricia Reilly Giff discovers surprising information about and unexpected connections with her Irish ancestors. Beginning with family stories she follows any clues she finds to search out her family's past. This takes her to libraries and research centers, homes of relatives, and to Ireland. In the process she shares a wealth of information about how to trace one's family along with family photos and documents. Some mysteries are solved with surprising conclusions but others are left to future generations to unravel. The result is a poignant book about enduring gifts and challenges our ancestors can leave to us.
