While my aunt was here visiting from Buenos Aires in the Autumn she brought a portion of the genealogy on my maternal side of the “Gardiner / Meagher O Maher” clan. Although I knew I was part Irish I didn't know exactly where it came from.
Anne marries Francisco Perez in La Merced de Buenos Aires, Argentina, they have four children: Francisco, Ana, Honoria and Josefa. Their son Francisco Perez-Gardiner (born Feb. 25, 1882) marries Rosa Groppo (born Dec. 29, 1889) on October 22, 1910.
Francisco and Rosa have seven children: Amelia, Ana, Dora, Francisco, Carlos, Elsa and Jorge.
Their daughter Ana (my grandmother) marries Victor Giusti (my grandfather). Ana and Victor have four children: Martha (my mother), Alfredo, Ali and the baby girl who died while a toddler.
Perfume to illuminate today is the floral, foresty green notes of Hedera helix.
The answer to the joke: "A pub"
