Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I wonder if we are seeking the same family line. My g.g.g. grandfather was a Patrick Purtle, born 1818 county Limerick, married Margaret Herreen, 15 children, 12 surviving, some named Michael, Catherine, Patrick, Mary etc. Migrated to Australia in 1840. Patrick's sister Brigid married Margaret's brother Daniel, they also migrated at the same time.
Wonder if Michael, Patrick and Brigid were siblings.
