Wednesday, January 26
Researching Irish Genealogy  (Educational Opportunities)
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Virtual Session
Please join us for a presentation by Dave Miller.  Dave has been researching family histories including his own for the past 40 years. He holds a Master of Arts Degree from the University of Illinois Springfield, and a Professional Learning Certificate of Genealogical Studies from the National Institute for Genealogical Studies. He is a member of Irish Genealogical Society International.
This presentation covers Irish records for beginners and for those who have been at this for awhile. It is especially important for those who have plans to conduct research in Ireland sometime in the future when the archives and libraries reopen. We will start with the records that you can find here in North America and how that can help you find the records in Ireland on your ancestors. We will also go over the archives and libraries in Ireland, what type of information you can find on the various websites in Ireland plus what type of information you will need when you visit there.
