**POSTPONED** Irish Genealogy
The Newberry Library
The Newberry has been closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19. To enable visitors to practice social distancing now recommended by both the Center for Disease Control and the Chicago Department of Public Health, we have decided to postpone this program. Please visit www.newberry.org/covid19 for more information and for regular updates regarding Newberry operations.
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. To register, click here.
