In Their Words: Irish Research

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day because it is your heritage? Researching your Irish ancestors and confused by what you have found? Need some pointers to which records are available and how to access them? Join David Rencher, AG, CG, FUGA, FIGRS, and his teaching team Thomas W. Jones, Ph.D., CG, CGL, FASG, and Richard G. Sayre, CG, CGL, as they present the week-long course “Irish Genealogical Research.” With registration for the six July 16-21 courses opening on Wednesday, March 8 at Noon Eastern, you won’t want to miss out on this hand-on course that gives you actual practice in the records, allowing you to expand your research “across the pond.”

Or as David says, “Beginners and seasoned veterans in Irish research will all enjoy this course. Daily additions to the online offerings of Irish records are heavily supplementing the basic research methodologies for added success in identifying your Irish families and their origins. If you’ve been putting off starting your Irish research because you’ve heard it’s too difficult, then this course is for you. Learn all of the basic record sources, research strategies and enjoy some tailored hands-on land workshops to test what you think you know about your Irish ancestors.
