Schartung Clarke has visited Ireland in the past, and traces her Irish roots to Co. Kerry.
“My Irish heritage has been handed down through many generations of the Riney family. Stories have been kept alive through grandparents to families through nine generations, as my children know about their Irish heritage,” she says.
“The stories of immigration to the U.S. during a time of Catholic persecution have been preserved. Our genealogy traces back to a time when the church was not able to keep records of family births and deaths, so our information is limited beyond that point. I am proud to know the strength of my ancestors and to carry that on to my children today.”
