Joseph Quinn 1852 and Thank you, Genes Reunited!

I was doing yet another random search one day when I noticed that someone had my great grandfather (Joseph Quinn 1852) in their family tree. (Well, how many times have we all thought that when we've had a "Hot match?" ) I messaged him only to discover that we did connect and that he was able to take my Mother's Irish family back to 1775! (I'd lost hope of finding her ancestors due to the destruction of Irish records.)
So, thank you Genes Reunited! And, to all of you with a "brickwall" - don't give up!
