If you’re a member of Irish Genealogical Society Intl (IGSI), you receive the quarterly journal, The Septs, and you already know each issue has a specific theme. Themes for upcoming issues include:
2015 – April – Scots Irish
When and why they entered Ireland; why they left; information on Scots Irish in the Colonies. How to study the Scots Irish in the U.S. and Ireland. Deadline for articles: February 1, 2015.
2015 – July – Diaspora Revisited
Today, many more Irish live outside of the Emerald Island than on it. We seek articles about the reasons for the dispersal, the Irish in their new homelands, or how to trace them back to Ireland. Deadline for articles: May 1, 2015.
2015 – October – Green Genes (DNA)
The principles of DNA, Irish family case studies, info on modern Irish groups and use of DNA. Deadline for articles: August 1, 2015.
2016 – January – Irish Surnames and Given Names
