...Family History Stories from 2013...

Above: IrishCentral, 11th March 2015.  Hold the front page!  Caroline Rochford’s amazing true story about a barefoot boy from Dublin who almost thwarted the Egyptian Revolution of 1952 (top right, above) was featured on this great American/Irish news website, and was shared via social media more than 2,000 times!  It’s a story of war and adventure, spanning the whole of the 20th century.  Paddy’s tale starts in Dublin in 1912, the year the Titanic sank.  Before he knows it, he is enrolled with the British Army and is sent across the world, from Ireland to England, where he guards the royal family at Buckingham Palace, and then on to the Middle East during World War II.  Click here to read the full story.

Above: Discover Your Ancestors, January 2015.  Michael J. Rochford writes about one of his client’s fascinating ancestors, known to history as The Darfield Flier.  Thought the Tour De France was full of drama?  Think the Tour De Yorkshire will be action packed?  Our modern cyclists pale into insignificance compared to this cycling champion of the 19th century!
