Sons of Irish shoemakers make a bid for the American presidency

It was with interest that I read about Megan Smolenyak's research into the roots of one of the current presidential candidates. Now she has gone even further and researched his running mate's genealogy.

Ironically, both men descend from Irish shoemakers who immigrated to America in the year 1849. For the latest on the story, see Megan's article on her Roots Television/Megan's Roots World blog.
