Getting Started in Irish Genealogy

Those with Irish ancestry know that its research provides unique challenges. If you're just beginning your Irish research, or need a refresher course, you'll be excited to hear about a new, online presentation offered by the New England Historic Genealogical Society.

  • Getting Started
  • Start with yourself
  • Keep a wide focus
  • Census records
  • Other records
  • Records with birthplaces
  • Naturalization records
  • Post-1906 passenger records
  • Gravestone inscriptions
  • Newspaper records
  • Military records
  • Court records
  • Business records
  • and a reading list
