Ulster Historical Foundation North American Lecture Tour 2016
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, others survived and large collections have come online in recent years. Join experts Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt from the Foundation during their annual North American lecture tour and learn how to get the most out of Irish resources and records, gain strategies for breaking down brick walls, and grasp important historical context that may help fill in gaps in your research. Whether you are just beginning your Irish research or have been at it for years, you won’t want to miss these workshops. They run from the 5th to the 22nd of March in various cities and states.
