Most of our Irish ancestors were tenant farmers, leasing plots directly from the landowner or sub-leasing from another Irishman. Land records are a good source for family history information, even if our ancestors didn’t own real property in Ireland.
November 9 is Irish Saturday at the MGS Library in S St Paul. IGSI is sponsoring another class to help you learn more about your Irish roots.
Experienced researcher Tom Rice will share his knowledge of Irish estate records. Your ancestors didn’t need to own land for this topic to be important to you!
