        "I just recently joined this list.  I think this is all
interesting.  I was wondering, since all of you understand the history
MUCH better than I do, if you could help me.  I have Irish blood in me.
I'm not sure which part I am from, but I could find out my mother's side.
Her maiden name is Murray (I'm not sure what it was originally).  My
father (who's family doesn't have all that much information) could have
Irish descendents.  He thinks that he does.  His (and mine) last name is
Harrah (which was changed probably?).  This may be pointless and a waste
of time, but if anyone could help me, I would appreciate it.
