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.
