Now that he will have a bit more time available after next January 20, Joe Biden may have time to research his own family tree. Actually, there is an old joke that has turned out to be accurate in Biden’s case: “Fastest way to trace family tree: run for public office.” Joe Biden’s family tree has already been researched by Ancestor Network, a collective of many of Ireland’s most experienced genealogical experts in tracing people of Irish ancestry.
Now Joe Biden is traveling to Ireland tomorrow for a state visit. As part of the visit, Mr Biden is expected to visit some of his ancestral home-places.
US Vice President Joe Biden has spoken of the deeply personal nature of the trip that he will make to Ireland this week, one that he had planned to do with his late son Beau who died last year. He will arrive in Ireland tomorrow for a six-day visit and is expected to take in three counties while here. Joe and Beau Biden had always planned to make a trip to Ireland, but did not get the opportunity before Beau’s untimely death.
