A Family Legacy Project Celebrating a Grand Family Reunion

Mrs Kinsale-Manning entrusted us with piecing together a story than spun all the way back to the early 1800s. Our hunt for her ancestry led us to archives in London and Canada, and an exploration of the family’s roots using DNA testing. 

This book is a chronicle of how we managed to connect two branches of the Kinsale Family, who always knew they were family but did not fully understand how.

REGIONS COVERED: West Africa, Ireland, Trinidad and Tobago.

Have you ever wished that you could get a clear understanding and explanation of the past and assess its impact on the present? And then attempt to predict the future? The Kinsale family did, and Plantain helped us to answer a lot of questions just in time for our family reunion attended by people from all over the world. The deep history the team helped us to uncover has led us to not only honour the past, but more importantly to spread the news to the next generation.
