Irish Genealogy Essentials – October 2017

The Ulster Historical Foundation released this announcement about Irish Genealogy Essentials: A Family History Course:

After the success of our Irish Genealogy Essentials course held in February 2017, the Foundation will be offering another course in October 2017.

Running from 09-13 October 2017 this programme will be delivered by the Foundation’s experienced staff and will include a week of intensive learning, with practical demonstrations using relevant websites and other electronic resources, plus a day and a half of guided research in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland.

This course will cover topics such as: Irish land divisions; nineteenth and early twentieth century census returns; church records; civil records; Griffith’s valuation; tithe applotment books; wills and testamentary papers; as well as other key topics to help you with your research.

Irish Genealogy Essentials: A Family History Course is highly recommended for those who are relatively new to Irish family history and would like to get to grips with research techniques, archives and genealogical resources in Ireland. It is also the ideal opportunity for those with more experience in genealogy to learn about lesser-known sources, many of which are not yet online and are available only in the archives.
