We went to the Spring 2016 Dallas Genealogy Society (DGS) Seminar to hear Paul Milner speak on immigration from the British Isles. It was a great series; I learned a lot about Irish history in particular that will help in understanding when, why and how my various Irish ancestors came to the United States.  In particular, the "Irish Emigrants to North America: Before, During and After the Famine" helped a lot in giving me an understanding of where John Moore probably entered and the path that he took to get where he ended up (Illinois).

We may never document his origins, but the history that I'm learning in the process is fascinating.
