My grandmothers brother emigrated to Portugal at the beginning of the last century. My father told me a story when he was alive about his cousin who was a doctor in Portugal and had been killed in a road accident in Angola, Africa. He had been knocked down by a truck carrying drunken soldiers.
He said he had a daughter Ana and that her mother had re-married a hotelier in Oporto, Portugal.
Thanks to Google, I have tracked down Ana, who is a scientist with the European Space Program.
I have discovered a whole branch of the Keating Family now living in Portugal. They are as delighted as I am. I have photo's of my grandmothers parents and of course my grandmother. I can now fill them in on their Irish ancestory.
