I met an Elderly Irish Gent. that came into my job one afternoon. We spoke a few minutes.I told him my Fathers mother was full Irish.In U.S.A. there's not many full anything. I'll guess 2 Asain and mid.eastern.
I told him my Grandma's maiden name was Devlin,She married a Polish man named Drost,which I've heard his name was changed. They changed everyones name back then to sound American. His real birth name was Drocz.My brother seen his certificate.His whole family ascaped Poland and he was born in Austria. I concider myself Polish and Irish,on my Dads side.My Mom is different, which I won't bring up.
Back to the man at the store, he told me the Devlin name is a well known name in Ireland. Three years ago I went to the Library, I was wanting to go there.I rented books and videos.It sounded great. I knew how beautiful it is from movies.
