Ballaghaderreen, Co. Roscommon, Ireland

According to family lore, some of my Irish roots lead back to Ballaghaderreen, Co. Roscommon, Ireland.

In the meantime, this postcard is a reminder of discoveries yet to come. #falknerjarrell #ancestors #familyhistory #genealogy #genealogyphoto #ancestry #antiquephotograph #family #vintagephotography #oldphotos...

The Prince of Wales

The Prince of Wales (later Edward VIII and the Duke of Windsor) visited Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada in 1919.
