More Merrill Musings


For the uninitiated (and perhaps even those in the know) “Where’s Merrill?” is a uniquely crafted fact-based mystery thriller which focuses on a real family and real events. In fact, it is two inter-related stories in one novel set in different time-frames, namely the past and the present. The story is about an Irish genealogist called Jed, commissioned by Tim, an American client, to help identify and find his grandfather; a man who simply disappeared. No death record, no burial. Nothing.

The novel is about much more, though. Read the full story, and then come back here for more ….

  1. I now know the last item to ask for on my Christmas list…..Where’s Merrill? My grandmother’ was from Sligo and strangely enough I’m in pursuit of the shadowy figure of her father Terrence Marren, a true black sheep in family lore. Hopefully with your help and the inspiration of Jed I can get to the bottom of his fate. A bleak one possibly.

  2. Hi
    Enjoyed the pictures of Aclare as I have just been there in July after a 43 year absence! I have family in Carns and met some more of the extended family while we were there. They are all from the Ginty and Boland families and I’m sure they are from Cladagh and killasser as well.
    I have been putting some of the family tree together but as I am in Perth Australia and it can be difficult.
    Anyway thanks for a great site will keep visiting .
