The author is an Irish citizen who enjoys traveling back to the "old sod" to visit newly discovered family.


Background Information

Sharon has been involved in researching her Irish roots for more than three years. The author began to wonder about her Irish when she realized that she and her siblings had no memory of family events or stories to tell their children. The author recalled family stories perceived through parents' whispered accusations, and she grew up believing that being Irish was akin to suffering from a dreaded disease--you knew you had it and lived with it as best you could. Recently becoming curious about her family history, she decided to search for any information regarding her Irish-born grandparents. Old documents revealed a story--one she couldn't ignore. Facts concerning the lives of her grandparents emerged and secrets were uncovered. An overwhelming curiosity directed the author to dig deeper into family records, to travel to the villages in Ireland where her grandparents were born, and to locate family who still reside in those villages.

Accomplishments

Finding My Irish was chosen to be the Book of the Week (4-25-06) in the Galway, Ireland edition of Irish Emigrant Online.
Recommended on RootsWeb for those searching for their heritage.
Finding My Irish is highly recommended by the Irish-American News (Feb.2006).
Irish America Magazine (May 2006) describes Finding My Irish as providing an illuminating portrait of old Ireland.

Additional Information

Sharon Shea Bossard travels with her book to all scheduled Irish fests where she autographs copies of her book and shares her journey with those who wish to being to find their Irish. She has written a Supplement to the book, which gives the novice genealogist a place to begin.
