Wordless Wednesday: Picked By Loving Irish Hands

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt at Geneabloggers that asks family historians to create a post in which the main focus is a photograph or image.

This St. Patrick’s Day card complete with real shamrocks was my first clue that my great grandmother Mary Theresa Sheehan Killeen Walsh had family left behind in Ireland. A niece with the name “Sheehan” meant Mary Theresa had a brother. They were in County Limerick, not Cork as I had always heard.

I cannot read the date, but it cannot be later than 1939.

  1. That card is well preserved :)


  2. That is an amazing heirloom. The fact that it holds genealogical makes it even better.

  3. Love this! A beautiful card PLUS a hint. Go Wendy!
