#05: From Ireland to America - Finding My Ancestors In Pennsylvania
For my final semester of college, I had to create a "capstone project" in order to graduate with my bachelor's degree in Storytelling. I decided to use the opportunity to fly from Colorado to Pennsylvania to discover who my Irish ancestors were. I visited churches, schools, birthplaces, and cemeteries, collecting dates and locations. But the best answers I got about who they were were and what their lives were like came from a phone call I had weeks later with a professor of Irish studies at NYU.
