You can see my Ancestry.com public file at: New York City Foley Families
And yes, I titled this post "Method to my Madness...." because I have ulterior motives. For some time now I have been searching for the Foley family who is "mine". I was not raised by my biological family. In fact, I don't even know who they are!
I'll go into that later and I will document my search, my theories, my DNA connections, all with the hope of finding someone who may know "who I am".
My second motive has to do with ongoing encouragement to teach a course in Genealogy at the OSHA Lifelong Learning Institute at Clemson University. I have started to put together a course curriculum of a genealogical journey, tapping into a family that I came across by finding one small newspaper article published in 1920 on Long Island. I knew nothing about her or her family prior to my research. I will post this journey of discovery as new evidence is found. It should be interesting to see what unravels.
New friends are always welcome.
