A project which explores networking and information seeking in the amateur genealogy community. Participation involves answering a short questionnaire about your genealogy interests, after which you will be assigned a password to enter a private listserv. The listserv offers you a space to talk about your hunt for your Irish ancestors with other amateur genealogists searching for their Irish roots. A list of surnames is available within the listserv area and participants can contact others looking for the same surnames. This study is part of a university research initiative. Participation is voluntary and all information included in the final report will be anonymous. This research is supported by a grant from the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS).
