Hello, John and Rose,
So exciting to learn of your research for this family and what you are endeavoring to do. We are also interested in finding our connection to this family. I am assuming that you checked out my webpages, since you replied to my query posted with the webpages URLs.
My sister, our hubbies, and I were in Ireland in June, trying to find data on our SHIELDS family. Perhaps you have seen some of my postings regarding some of the information we found while researching.
I would like to stay in contact with you and would be delighted to learn of any information that you are willing to share.
You can write me privately at AudreyShieldsHancock@att.net
If you haven't seen my other postings please contact me and I will share with you my limited findings.
