Tax Rolls: Getting Our Money’s Worth from the Taxes Our Ancestors Paid — replay of today's members-only webinar by Elizabeth Shown Mills now available for members
Getting Out of the Archives and Into the Pubs to Trace Your Irish Ancestry — free replay of today's webinar by Eliza Watson now available for limited time

Register for Tuesday's Down Under webinar: Getting Out of the Archives and Into the Pubs to Trace Your Irish Ancestry by Eliza Watson


This webinar demonstrates how Eliza Watson traced her Coffey ancestry line back eight generations from southwest Wisconsin to Ireland in 1705. An amazing feat due to the lack of Irish historical records. Her success was thanks to a newfound Irish Daly relation, extensive cemetery research, and a local historian. The webinar provides creative ways to break down an Irish research brick wall.

About the presenter

Her genealogy adventures have inspired a nonfiction book, Genealogy Tips & Quips, and two fiction series set in Ireland, Scotland, and England, including A Mags and Biddy Genealogy Mystery.

She has contributed articles to several prestigious publications, including Family Tree Magazine and a cover story in the Utah Genealogical Association’s publication, Crossroads. Eliza enjoys conducting author and ancestry presentations at cultural events. In 2013, she fulfilled her dream of owning a home in Ireland when she purchased a renovated 1887 schoolhouse in her Coffey ancestors’ town.
