Wanted: Irish Catholic ancestors

St. Patrick in stained glass in the church of my ancestors:
St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Pottsville, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania
The history of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland is rich with tales of glorious success as well as those of survival in the face of incredible suffering and persecution. This St. Patrick's Day - and every day - I was very proud to wear green in honor of my Irish heritage and the many faithful Catholic ancestors throughout my family tree.

If you have Irish Catholic ancestry and are interested in working to discover more specifics about your family tree, make a visit to The Catholic Gene to read my latest article - Seeking the Flock of St. Patrick: Researching Catholic Ancestors in Ireland.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Small-leaved Shamrock

St. Patrick's Cemetery, Pottsville, Pennsylvania
A wonderful St. Patrick's Day to all of my Small-leaved Shamrock readers! I'm working on getting back into some serious genealogy work and hope to post some family history discoveries here soon about my Irish ancestors who immigrated to Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.

I hope you are wearing your green on this Irish day of celebration! May God bless your fun and feasting!

P.S. If you'd like visit our St. Patrick's Day blog parades of past years, make a visit to the Carnival of Irish Heritage and Culture. It's a great place to gain inspiration for digging into your Irish family tree.
