Tracing Irish Roots Workshop
Sat, March 25, 2017, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
An estimated 39.6 million Americans claim Irish heritage, yet tracing one’s Irish ancestry is not without its challenges. Common surnames, unsubstantiated family lore, and lost records from the 1922 destruction of the Public Record Office can certainly play havoc with your research. In recent years, however, a number of genealogical materials have come online. This workshop aims to provide participants with the tools and resources to discover their ancestors’ Irish origins, offer strategies for overcoming brick walls, and discuss key resources, records, and repositories to assist genealogists in their Irish research. Space is limited, and registration is required.
