OK, this is an older posting, but one that caught my interest immediately. In October of 2009, Michael Brophey, a genealogist from Massachusetts and owner of Brophy's Irish Genealogy blog, published a post about Vincent E. Feeney's book, entitled "Finnigans, Slaters and Stonepeggers: A History of the Irish in Vermont," a book that discusses Vermont Irish immigrants.
As a descendant of Irish immigrants, I am excited to have discovered this book. One of my questions has been how my Irish ancestors lived and why they came here. Perhaps I can get some clues within the pages of this book.
Anyways, my follow friday recommendation this week is Michael Brophey's post, Vermont Irish.
