    Well done Heritage – I will be glad to get cracking 2015 to track my Irish Derry Brady mum who came with three of 7 orphaned Bradys about 1928 and brought up families here without much contact from large group relations in Londonderry because of hard times and lack of communication channels pertaining. They were Annie and Bessie Brady and [young sister decd soon after arrival].Both lived until
    90 yrs old.
