This page from the family scrapbook created by Aunt Janette traces the lineage of my best friend Bonnie's maternal great grandmother Jane Fitzgerald (O'Brien) back to Irish roots. Direct ancestors have been underlined in green and a portrait of Bonnie's great great grandmother Mary Leonard (Fitzgerald) was included.

Bonnie and her cousin Lyn traveled to Ireland this past April to see what more could be discovered about their kin and I expect I'll learn more during my annual visit later this summer.
