March 2019 Lecture Tour Update.
We are making plans for the spring North American lecture tour, which will take place from 9 to 24 March 2019.
We are already scheduled to appear in Concord NH, Philadelphia PA, Salt Lake City UT, Denver CO, Tampa FL and Fairfield CT, and provisionally in Pittsburgh PA and Madison WI, but other dates are still available.
We would like to ask if there is a society, library or group near to you that would be interested in an Irish and Scots-Irish family history research programme. If there is interest perhaps you would put us in contact with the local programme organisers by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading ‘2019 Lecture Tour’.
You may note from our previous itineraries that we travel widely across North America and are happy to visit any location where an invitation to us is extended.
This is your opportunity to try to help arrange an Irish and Scots-Irish research workshop in your area. We hope you might take the time to respond, and we thank you in advance for any useful contacts which help us to build our tour itinerary.
We greatly value all the offers of help members & supporters have given in recent years to our programmes in North America. If you think you can be of any practical assistance this time we’d be delighted to hear from you. If you are not personally involved with a society, perhaps you would share this information with a friend or contact who is.
We apologise in advance to those who do not live in the USA or Canada as we realise this information is not hugely relevant to you. However, it at least does help to keep you informed of the Foundation’s forthcoming activities.
In addition, we would always make the point that staff from the Foundation are very happy to present programmes in any location, and in recent years have made efforts to travel widely to share the Foundation’s knowledge and expertise.
We look forward to hearing from you.
