• Why is it that all written text that i can find about the Prentice family only says " some of the Prentice family member's moved to Ireland BUT this topic is not coved in this excerpt " So where can I find this family Does anyone here know Irish history ??? My Ancestry comes from that line of the Prentice Clan. from well know history dating from as the 11th century there was a small family with the last name prentice only 2% of all people with the last name can claim this family. I am one of them dating to my 2nd great-grandfather James Prentice who was born in Ireland in 1821. same as my post from days ago. what my family cant find is the link to James and this family since he was disowned for becoming catholic. my question is where in the world can I find the info I need ?? All history on the Irish Prentice's seem to be a biggest challenge
