My father, John Joseph O’Neill, 91, really enjoyed receiving the book. He made a special point of asking me to thank you. I pointed out his two “appearances” in the book — one, when mentioned (with his late brother Emmett) as children of Francis O’Neill and Mary Loretto (O’Sullivan) O; the other time in a clipping as nephew of an uncle who passed away.
He was especially delighted to learn more about his great,
great grandparents and great
grandparents, and to be reminded of the names of his grandparents.
I will be launching the book about John O’Neill and Ellen Dwyer, A New Life . . . in a New Land, on Sunday, June 30, 2019 at my home in Almonte. They are almost all pre-ordered so if you want a copy, contact me ASAP at email@example.com.
I will be publishing the O’Neill Genealogy book this spring. It is a hard cover book about 450 pages in length. I have managed to keep the cost to $50 (Canadian) plus shipping, if applicable. Payment can be made by Pay Pal or by a cheque to Jeri Lunney at PO Box 1524, Almonte, ON K0A 1A0 CANADA.
I have been contacted by three people from Ireland and one person from the USA who are connected by DNA to Al. If anyone reads this and if anyone wants to collaborate on Ryan/Gleeson genealogy, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
