Re: Obama and Biden Shoemaker roots from Ireland
In Response To: Re: Obama and Biden Shoemaker roots from Ireland ()
And the article did NOT say they were related -- but that it was "interesting" they were both descended from men who happened to be Irish and shoemakers who were part of the huge Irish migration in the middle 1800s.
Since about 1 1/2 million Irish came at that time and 30+ million Americans claim Irish connections/ancestry I'll bet you could find descendants of others who were on the boats with Biden's and Obama's ancestors.
It was a simple genealogy curiosity article.........
