Irish Genealogy Essentials: A Family History Course, 06-10 February 2017

Irish Genealogy Essentials


Researching your Irish and Scots Irish ancestors can be both exhilarating and frustrating. This taught course is highly recommended for those who are relatively new to Irish family history and wish to get to grips with research techniques, archives and genealogical sources in Ireland.

It is also the ideal opportunity for those with more experience in genealogy to learn about lesser-known sources, many of which are not yet online and are available only in the archives.

The course will be delivered by the Ulster Historical Foundation’s experienced staff and will include a week of intensive learning, with practical demonstrations using relevant websites and other electronic resources, and a day and a half of guided research in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland. Participants will have full access to the Foundation’s research and newspaper library, electronic resources, and of course the expertise of our staff.

Running from 06-10 February 2017, Irish Genealogy Essentials: A Family History Course will cover topics such as Irish land divisions; Nineteenth and early twentieth century census returns; Church records; Civil records; Griffith’s valuation; Tithe applotment books; wills and testamentary papers; and much more!
