On this day 121 Years ago, H. Rew wrote this brief note to President William McKinley on May 19, 1898.  He wrote from Belfast, Ireland giving the President information on his forefathers. Belfast, Ireland is the location where the Titanic would be built thirteen years later.  Mr. Rew enclosed two photographs of what is believed to be William McKinley’s ancestral home in Conagher near Ballymoney in the county of Antrim, Ireland. This information and much more is waiting for you to discover and explore in the McKinley Presidential Library.
