At the recent FGS conference in Philadelphia, I had a chance to talk with Brian Donovan. His company in Dublin, Ireland is the largest producer of Irish records and historical information for genealogists.
In this interview, Brian also talks about his expertise in American politics. He and his company researched the Irish ancestry of Barack Obama back to the 1600s. In this interview, Brian talked a bit about Obama's ancestors, their occupations and their lifestyles through the years. (Hint: Obama's Irish ancestors were also involved in politics.)
Brian also provided an interesting insight into Irish genealogy research and the services of Eneclann.
