‘Hidden Treasures’: Discovering Local Sources in Your Irish Research - free webinar by David Ryan now online for limited time

‘Hidden Treasures’: Discovering Local Sources in Your Irish Research - free webinar by David Ryan now online for limited time

The recording of today's webinar by David Ryan, "‘Hidden Treasures’: Discovering Local Sources in Your Irish Research" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

When many start their Irish family history research they often head straight for the larger national repositories and their collections. Census records and parish registers are a great starting point for our research but don’t always help you in breaking through those brick walls. What many overlook when researching their Irish family history is the treasure trove of local repositories and the records they contain. These include street directories, cemetery registers, maps, school rolls, workhouse records and even personal family archives. The majority of Irish counties on both sides of the border have their own dedicated county library and archive which are run by local councils. This webinar will examine some of the records contained in local repositories and how best to use them for genealogical research.

My ancestors were Irish – or were they? - free webinar by Natalie Bodle now online for limited time

My ancestors were Irish – or were they? - free webinar by Natalie Bodle now online for limited time

The recording of today's webinar by Natalie Bodle, "My ancestors were Irish – or were they? The origins of Irish surnames and building your family tree using Irish naming patterns" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.

Webinar Description

The webinar examines the history and origins of Irish surnames – native Irish, Scottish, English, Welsh, Huguenot, Viking, Gallowglass and Jewish.  If you don’t know where in Ireland your ancestors originated, we’ll include tips to help you to narrow down the location.  First names often followed a traditional naming pattern and this can help to build your family tree.  We’ll use case studies using traditional naming patterns to show how this worked. There are some naming traditions that were used in particular by the Ulster Scots that again can help to expand your family tree and we’ll also cover the Latin names sometimes used in Roman Catholic records.
