Oma Swaney Lopez

My Mother, Maude Swaney, and Oma corresponded regularly. Oma had quite an extensive collection of Swaney family records, and was always collecting more. When I was in CA., I called her to go visit, but Her husband was quite ill with Alzheimers and we didn't meet. When she died, I heard from her daughter, who I believe had Oma's records. I never found out where she was so I wonder what has become of all her work. I hope all is well with you and yours, Scott and I am happy that you are continuing the quest. I just wish someone could find out where in Ireland James came from. Our history seems to start in the US. Thelda
