The facts as presented: A man and his wife were identified. Both were thought to have been born in Ireland in about 1810, and both were thought to have died in Kingston, Ontario – he in 1860, she in 1875. Bare-bones year of birth, marriage and death facts were subsequently provided for 6 probable children.

The challenge: to discover any documentary evidence which would expand on the man and his wife – their origins in Ireland, the period of their emigration from Ireland, the true number and identification of their children, and so on.
