    As these letters relate to my husband's family, we are ecstatic about it. One woman in Canada, an inveterate letter-writer, kept all of the letters which she received from her parents in Ireland; siblings and their families in Ireland, England, Canada, the USA, and Australia; half-siblings and their families in Ireland and Australia; as well as from her own children. From the information in these letters my husband was able to CONFIRM what had previously only been hypothetical relationships between many of the MOORHEADS in Australia. Furthermore, given the Irish propensity for siblings to all give their own children the same family names; it enabled clarity to distinguish between each of the John MOORHEADs and James MOORHEADs etc. in Australian records. If only more people kept their family letters as Martha MOORHEAD ELLIS did, the world's social history would be so much the richer for it. As the editor/author: Blake Maher says, these letters provide wonderful insights into the... More > everyday lives and cares of one family, spread over several decades; in several countries across the world. For anyone with MOORHEAD family connections in Ireland in county Donegal, county Tyrone, county Londonderry, and Belfast; these letters might open up family connections not able to be found otherwise. The editor has kindly provided introductory words to help place each letter into a context, and very helpfully provides a numbering system to help differentiate between those people with the same forenames. Our family thanks to Blake Maher for providing this wonderful resource to us; and for making it so easily available in either hard-copy or electronic format; and at a very reasonable price.
