Rosie O’Donnell recently appeared on the NBC program Who Do You Think You Are? Many Irish-Americans will relate to her search for her roots. Rosie’s moving story begins with a mysterious photo of a woman that hung in her childhood playroom. That photo later reveals relatives she didn’t know existed, a French-Canadian connection and finally, a visit to Ireland… where she learns to drive on the left and experience Ireland’s coldest winter on record (it’s amazing to see Ireland covered in snow).
You are invited to see more of our posts about Irish genealogy… which includes our look at Barack Obama’s Irish heritage and our interview with Megan Smolenyak.
Thanks to Cindy at Celtic Voices for bringing this to our attention! And thanks to NBC for letting us watch the entire episode online.
