My family came from Navan near Kells. I understand that we found them because they were listed in a register of those who would deny their faith in order to get soup to save the family's lives.
Before my second great grandfather and his younger brother came to the U.S. the oldest 2 sons (their brothers)in the family took a boat to the Americas and were never heard from again. I suspect it was a "coffin ship" headed to the mouth of the St. Lawrence river in Canada and that they died either in passage and are in the sea or on arrival and are in the mass and unmarked graves. Yes, we need to call it as it was, genocide.
