Irish-Scots Genealogy Research March 3-4

E-mail Print PDF

 On March 3rd and 4th the McClelland Library will present an Irish and Scots-Irish genealogy research seminar that will be led by prominent Irish researchers from the Ulster Historical Foundation. Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt will be coming to Phoenix from Belfast to kick off their North American genealogy tour. 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 have come online in recent years.

Join experts Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt from the Ulster Historical Foundation 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 seminar!

 Each day will have 6 different genealogy topics and information offered that will include all of Ireland. Attend one or both days.
