The Irish American Heritage Center
Want to discover your Irish and Scots-Irish ancestors? Many people believe that researching Irish ancestors is impossible because of the destruction of the Public Record Office in 1922. While many records were destroyed, others survived and large collections have come online in recent years.
Join Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt from the Ulster Historical Foundation during their annual United States lecture tour to learn how to get the most out of Irish resources and records, gain strategies for breaking down brick walls, and grasp important historical context that may help fill in gaps in your research. Whether you are just beginning your Irish research or have been at it for years, you won’t want to miss this workshop! Fuller contact details with additional information can be found here.
This workshop is free, however, registration is required. Lunch can be pre-purchased if needed. To register, click here.
