|Title:||Using Irish Records for Your Family History|
|Contact:||Eileen Crosby, 413-420-8107|
|Description:||Even if you know where your ancestor called home in the Emerald Isle, there is still much to discover about your family history using Irish records. With more and more resources being made available almost daily, it’s a great time to do online research. Lisa Dougherty, genealogist-in-residence for the Irish American Heritage Museum in Albany, NY, will present an up-to-date overview of the records available and how to use them effectively. The newly-launched collection of Roman Catholic Parish registers available on the National Library of Ireland website will also be examined in depth, with information on how to access and interpret the records.
These two, back-to-back sessions are especially useful for those who have started their Irish family history and want to dig deeper.
Free and open to the public. Pre-registration recommended: call (413) 420-8107.
