As a genealogist, the satisfaction of a job well done is usually rewarded by a nice thank email or letter. People will then go on to share the findings with their wider family. It’s not often though that the genealogist gets invited to the family gathering, but that’s what happened to me today.
I met with a large group of people descended from the Mahon family in Malahide, Co. Dublin, who I had researched during the summer.
It was really lovely to help facilitate them meeting each other!
