  • Suffered through this one seeking more historical information on my Irish-slave ancestry. Reads like a seventh-grade research report (of which I have read many). Many misspellings, no page numbers, non-alphabetized bibliography. Cyclical repetitive content related out of sequence. A few facts of interest, but not much that is unique. Attempts at photos & original news articles are poorly-resolved & almost impossible to read in most cases. Think we paid $11 on : NOT WORTH IT!


  • Fascinating history – I was not aware of the Irish suffering in this way under the hands of the British. This is truly a missing piece of Irish British and American history.
