Online Learning: Irish Genealogical Research, Sources and Methods

$ 89.95

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, other sources, such as deeds and Catholic Church records still exist. The growth of available online records has also resulted in many more people finding their ancestors in Ireland. This online course provides you with key tips, research techniques, and resources to assist in your Irish research, especially as it pertains to 19th-century Irish immigrants.

Topics include: 

  • Locating Irish Origins: North American Research
  • Problem Solving in Irish Genealogy
  • Researching Irish Ancestors Online

This virtual course includes:

  • Three, one-hour recorded class sessions
  • Handouts with key terms and principles
  • Slides of the class presentations (in worksheet and large format)
