I am currently writing a biographical book about my Irish great-great grandmother, Harriet Susannah Ellis.
I started digging into my family history in the fall of 2013. In January, 2014, I found a distant cousin in a Dublin suburb who has been working on the family tree for twenty years. We paired up. I contacted all the North American descendants and we ended up with an extensive family genealogy book and a "mini-reunion" for some of the 269+ descendants of my great-great grandmother.
From there, the idea came to write a book specifically about Harriet.
