    It is 1870. You are an eleven year old little immigrant girl from Ireland living with your parents, uncle, and 5 younger siblings in a dirty cramped tenement on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Life is miserable and frightening in the slums with so much death and disease running rampant. But you try your best to keep out of trouble hoping one day to leave the slum and become an Explorer.

    Your name: Bridget "Birdie" Mairead Delaney
    Your parents' names: Gerard Padraig Delaney and Maire Catriona Delaney
    Your uncle's name: Thomas "Tommy" Eoin Delaney

    Because the adults work so much, your siblings are your best friends. They encourage you and entertain you and you love them dearly. What are they're names?
    Theodore "Teddy" Patrick Delaney (10)
    Robert "Robby" Ellis Delaney (9)
    Dorothea "Dottie" Rose Delaney (8)
    Grace "Gracie" May Delaney (6)
    Martin "Marty" Oliver Delaney (5)

    You also have a best friend from the Five Points District. He is a slick little pickpocket who, as far as you know, has been an orphan his whole life. You met him after he saved you from being run over by a car and you've been pals ever since. What is his name? Jude Archibald Ellison

    You, Jude and Teddy make the best of life in the slums by doing tricks in the streets for pennies and exploring the streets of New York in your spare time. You are happy to have such a large, loving family and the freedom to do as you please. But then, tragedy strikes….

    What happens? Your father and uncle are murdered in a pub brawl.

    Because of your father and uncle's death your life is turned upside down. It is now impossible for your mother to feed and clothe you and your siblings on an immigrants wages. You decide it would be best if you, as the oldest, to try to make your own way in the world. So at the age of 11 you leave your family behind and join Jude on the streets of New York as a pickpocket.

    It is 1870. You're a little immigrant girl living with your parents, uncle, and 2 younger siblings in a dirty cramped tenement on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Life is miserable and frightening in the slums with so much death and disease running rampant. But you try your best to keep out of trouble hoping one day to leave the slum and become an explorer.

    You and your family are immigrants from Ireland. You, Tiernan Maeve, are loud and rambunctious, always getting in trouble, and always very restless. Your parents are Roisin Niamh & Cormac Eamon, and your uncle is Finnian Connor, but everyone calls him Finn.

    Because the adults work so much, your siblings are your best friends. They encourage you and entertain you and you love them dearly. They're 7-year-old-twins, one boy and one girl, named Patrick Riley, who's protective of his sisters, but otherwise quiet and reserved & Bridget Mona, who's sweet and girly and loves to play with her dolls.

    You also have a best friend from the Five Points District. He is a slick little pickpocket who, as far as you know, has been an orphan his whole life. You met him after he saved you from getting hit by a lumber cart and you've been pals ever since. His name is Theo Oliver, and he absolutely adores you, though he tries his best to hide it and would never admit it, and you have no idea. He's funny, sweet when he wants to be, and often a stubborn little bugger. He has long-ish messy brown hair and wild green eyes.

    You, Theo and Patrick and Bridget make the best of life in the slums by doing tricks in the streets for pennies and exploring the streets of New York in your spare time. You are happy to have such a large, loving family and the freedom to do as you please. But then, tragedy strikes.

    There is an accident in the factory where your mother works. It left her crippled and unable to work.

    Because of the accident in the factory, your life is turned upside down. It is now impossible for your father to feed and clothe you and your siblings on an immigrant's wages. You decide it would be best if you, as the oldest, try to make your own way in the world. So at the age of 10 you leave your family behind and join Theo on the streets of New York as a pickpocket.

    List your childhood family here, if you like. You can include ages, descriptions and photographs.

    Cormac Eamon & Roisin Niamh
    (Uncle) Finnian Connor
    Tiernan Maeve
    Patrick Riley & Bridget Mona
    (Best Friend) Theo Oliver


    Part 2 up soon...
