Margaret I am fortunate to have an LDS library here in my small town. I left Illinois a long time ago. I also have spent a fortune renting church films. Their library has helped me get to where I am today especially when you consider I didn't have very much to start with. I even had special privileges from the current Bishop of County Limerick. When I told him I thought I might be related to Bishop George Butler, he told his archivist to help me in any way. Unfortuneately I didn't get much info. I haven't been able to tie Bishop Butler to my Mary Butler (dont know her parents, siblings, etc.). Although the Bishop was supposed to have lots of relatives (never determined to what degree they were related) who were Catholic priests. ONe was Thaddeus Butler and priest who served in the Civil War working out of Chicago. That was a dead end too. Oh well!
