Tracing your Irish and Scots Irish ancestors can be exhausting and frustrating, but the ‘hunt’ can lead to exciting discoveries along the way.  We will cover toics such as land divisions & the importance of discovering your ancestor’s “townland”; the 1901 & 1911 census, 19th century fragments & pre-1800 census substitutes; Griffith’s Valuation and tithe applotment books;  the Ulster Plantation; where and how to access church, civil & workshouse records; on-line records, websites and the resources available in Ireland at PRONI and the National Archives of Ireland.

We will end with shared stories and knowledge/insights gained from your research. Come join us and celebrate your Irish heritage!
