To the editor:

The article by Tracy Orzel, “Book details plight of the Maine Irish,” was very well written and researched – it is great exposure for the book. However, the first paragraph is a bit misleading. Although I did start studying genealogy and history at age 8, I also did play soccer and build tree forts, as well as play basketball, collect everything under the sun, and go hiking and camping every summer. I was able to fit everything in. But, it is the writing, genealogy and history that has stayed with me. And, as Tracy pointed out, has "paid" off. Thanks again to Tracy and the Sentry.
