She was a beautiful, young Irish maid, working in a wealthy English household. Her employer’s oldest son fell in love with her. When he announced intentions to marry her, his parents said they would disown him. He married her anyway. Then, bride and groom ran away to live happily ever after. “Her name was Mary Cordial,” my maternal grandmother Marilyn Matilda Dietz told me, that distinct glimmer of pleasure in her eyes—the one she always had when she retold this story. “And you are her legacy.”

This blog is a resource for those who want to--have to--find out more about who they came from.

This book is excellent for members of lineage groups in particular, as it describes methods I've used for years to promote my own DAR chapter, which had 52 members when I first joined and now has close to 100 members due to our group's publicity efforts.

Thanks for entering, and good luck!
