Following Occupational Trails

Saturday, October 8, is an opportunity to hear Sheila Northrop’s presentation “Following Occupational Trails.”

Sheila was a highly-rated presenter at the recent Celtic Connections Conference, and this topic promises to be similarly helpful in tracking difficult-to-find ancestors. Here’s the class description:

Use common occupations held by Irish immigrants to trace your ancestors. Learn techniques for identifying occupations and finding resources. See examples of records available and discuss options for your particular family research situation. Great for descendants of senators as well as common laborers.

The October 8 ‘Irish Saturday’ class will be held 10:30 am to 12 noon at the MGS library, 1185 Concord Street North, Suite 218, South St Paul, Minnesota.

Cost is $15 for members of Irish Genealogical Society International (IGSI) and $20 for non-members.

If you’re unable to attend the class but would like to receive class notes, you may order them for $5.

To register, visit the IGSI website.

Experienced volunteers are available on ‘Irish Saturdays’ during MGS library hours (10 am to 4 pm) to help you with your Irish research.
