The Murphy's

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, May 31, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 332 pages
It was a distant cousin's personal manuscript that led Janice to write The Murphy's. Always wondering about her Irish ancestors on her mother's side, Janice spent the past three years trying to find them and bring them 'back to life' for other family members to meet, get to know and maybe lead to a better understanding of each other as well. With most of her ancestors gone, she focused her search on town records, newspaper articles, fragments of notes and pictures left behind by family members. Now that the Irish have been brought back to 'life' through words and pictures, she believes the Murphy's are, hopefully, resting in peace.

About the author (2011)

Every family has wonderful stories to tell and oftentimes there is one person in that family who, for some strange reason, is chosen to carry on the family history. Lifelong Saugus resident Janice Jarosz was designated to do just that through no direct fault of her own. Old records, family bibles and pictures somehow found their way to her door - fragments of history that were looking for a home. In 1992, she wrote Dear Relatives putting the Penney family tree to rest and now in 2011 maybe through piecing the Murphy history together, they too will find peace.
