There’s still time and space to register for the Celtic Connections Conference at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts, to be held August 15-16, 2014.
You’ll kick yourself later if you miss the chance to meet and hear the Celtic Connections presenters from far and near. Here are a few of the Big Names speaking on topics related to “Leaving Home: Migration, Motivation, Myth”:
Kyle J. Betit
Eileen O Duill
Sean O Duill
And eleven more presenters who may hold the key to breaking down your brick wall!
As an aside, I was reading – and chuckling over – John Grenham’s Irish Times blog posting for this week entitled “Why can’t you find your Irish ancestors online?” And I thought to myself, in ten days I’ll see him in person and maybe shake his hand.
You could, too. Check this out: http://www.tiara.ie/
