How to Get Rich and Famous
The Baronets of Cloughgrennan
A story of an Irish family from early beginnings in the 12th century up to the early part of the 20th century. Links to England at the time of the reformation and Plantation and to the United States at the time of American Independence are of particular interest. The people and events have been diligently researched by renowned historian and writer Turtle Bunbury.
The family has relations around the world and you might be related!
