Could you contribute?

Many descendants of Irish emigrants have helped me to explore their divergent paths in this blog and its associated book. People have given me the benefit of their memories, family legends, historical documents and photographs. Some of this material has been included in posts on this site.

I have had many helpful comments about my posts and one correspondent has suggested the site could be used to offer and exchange family photographs and documents that might be of interest to other family descendants of the Stafford Irish and/or to people more generally.

I think that is a great idea. If you agree and you think you might have something to contribute, please email me at or and include an attachment of what you would like to contribute and whether you might like it to be available to everyone or to specific contacts only.

I need to emphasise that these contributions MUST be related to the divergent paths of families some of whose members at some time lived in the town of Stafford and NOT with material dealing generally with Irish emigrants.
