It's lovely to hear that your mother-in-law Bonny has connections with the island of Ireland!
Has she ever tried to trace her family history, we have some excellent resource information
here on the forum that may be of use.
A big thanks also to Frances for the offer of a potential pen-pal. Corresponding by letter is a dying art and both would benefit from starting up an "across the pond" communication I'm sure.
We look forward to hearing on any news.
