Absolutely beautiful - Annie Moore

I've followed Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak's research, stories, and videos from the beginning of the search for the "real" Annie Moore. I think that this "story line" illustrates the very best in genealogy and family history research, and now the circle is complete. Megan's latest story about Annie Moore is posted in Ellis Island's Annie Moore Honored in Ireland and New York.

Roots Television has videos posted of the ceremony in Cork, Ireland that commemorated her last home there and also a video of the ceremony in Queens, New York to unveil the tombstone of Annie Moore. The former is a bit long, but the latter is only five minutes long and is just absolutely beautiful.

I encourage you to watch the video Annie Moore Memorial Ceremony at Roots Television. The family of Annie Moore, and the extended family of genealogists, has done a wonderful thing here.

Thanks for the kind words, Randy. It was an honor to take part in all this. We can talk more about it on the cruise -- not too long away!
