Just got an exciting email from a Sheppard cousin in Ireland!

Chronicle of Our Branch of the Family in North America - Part 1

The current availability of online databases and the mass photocopying of searchable historical documents have led to a renewed interest in genealogy, and it is now much easier to fill in the basic outline of our family trees.
