“Irish Saturday” Classes

A new year brings a new round of Irish Saturday classes sponsored by Irish Genealogical Society International (IGSI).

The second Saturday of each month is Irish Saturday at the Minnesota Genealogical Society (MGS) Library. Here are classes scheduled for early 2016:

January 9 – Indirect Evidence – 10:30 am – with Tom Rice, CG

Often the answers to our genealogical questions are not presented to us in a straightforward way. Then we have to search further afield and analyze the information we find to ferret out the answer. Tom Rice’s presentation will look at several examples of using indirect evidence to find an answer and in two cases disprove a direct incorrect answer.


February 13 – Not all Irish were Catholic – 10:30 am – with Audrey Leonard

Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian, Quaker, Jewish! There are church records for Irish ancestors of many faiths. Learn where to find these records.


March 12 – Problems with Irish Ancestors? – 10:30 am – with Audrey Leonard

Have you hit the proverbial brick wall? If you are stuck finding information on an Irish ancestor – or identifying the surname of an ancestor – or just looking to learn more about Irish genealogy resources, this may be the session for you. If possible, send your question in advance of the class (by March 1),


Location: Minnesota Genealogical Society Library, 1185 Concord St N, S St Paul, MN  55075

Time: 10:30 am to noon

Cost: $15 for IGSI members, $20 for non-members. If you are unable to attend the class but would like class notes, you may order them by sending $5 to IGSI.
