Researching Irish ancestors can be both exhilarating and frustrating. This taught course is highly recommended for those who are relatively new to Irish family history and wish to get to grips with research techniques, archives and genealogical sources in Ireland. It is also the ideal opportunity for those with more experience in genealogy to learn about lesser-known sources, many of which are not yet online and are available only in the archives.
The course will be delivered by the Ulster Historical Foundation’s experienced staff and will include a week of intensive learning, with practical demonstrations using relevant websites and other electronic resources, and a day and a half of guided research in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland. Participants will have full access to the Foundation’s research and newspaper library, electronic resources, and of course the expertise of our staff. We look forward to helping you find out more about your elusive Irish ancestors.
