CHALFONT, Pennsylvania (GBT) — Shiela A. Graham Cunningham passed away last month at her home in Chalfont, Pennsylvania, at the age of 92. She was born on January 25th, 1929, and was the daughter of the late Joseph A. Graham, Sr., and Julia Corr Graham. I visited Aunt Sheila home at home in 2014 and received a wealth of family history information. She had numerous clippings and mass cards that offered various leads of investigation, as well as her own baby book, completed by her mother. Aunt Sheila put me in contact with Eleanor Hentschel, who is the the first cousin I met from the McShane branch of the family. At Eleanor's invitation, attended a McShane family reunion in 2018. Sheila, Eleanor, and I sat down together the following year at Eleanor's home and shared more family history.

This month I inadvertently added my podcast feed to the Google Podcasts directory.  We're now live and searchable to the podcast-listening world! Let's hope my server can handle it! I've also apparently exhausted my Family Tree document hints. I'm sure I didn't clear them all, so where did they go? Lastly, my genealogy origin story. Hear my grandfather, Joseph A. Graham, describe in a 2007 recording how our Graham ancestors allegedly fled Scotland for Ireland. My desire to confirm this story through documentary evidence evolved into a lifelong genealogy obsession.
