The only reason i was able to find an exact town in Ireland is because over the years i found relatives that still lived there. It was just by chance and its a definite relation so i lucked out. But not with the Boland and Burkes. Just found the county on the baptismal certificate.
I wandered around that cemetery for an hour with flowers in a plastic bag to put at graves i was searching for. I found one to lay flowers at and walked around with an empty bag.After a half hour of looking for the other grave i gave up but the wind ripped the bag out of my hand and took off. i felt bad leaving litter so I ran after the bag. Just a few paces from the bag was the grave i was searching for!!! It was amazing
