Tracing Irish Ancestry: one day course at SOG, London

Home of the Society of Genealogists:
14 Charterhouse Buildings, Goswell Road, London EC1
Here's a rare opportunity to take a full-day course in Irish genealogy in England.

Based at the Society of Genealogists (SOG) offices just off Goswell Road, London EC1, the course will be presented on Saturday 4 July from 10:30am to 5pm.

It will start with an overview of Irish family history research basics and will then cover a number of topics in 30-minute sessions.

Topics will include:
  • an introduction to some lesser known sources
  • a brief overview of historical background and population movements
  • the treasure trove to be found at the Registry of Deeds
  • Irish Military Archives
  • Irish records found in England
Ample time will be included for Questions and Answers and all delegates will receive a comprehensive overview fact-sheet and list of websites.

The course will be presented by Rosalind McCutcheon and Jill Williams, both Fellows of the Irish Genealogical Research Society (IGRS) and well-known to those who visit the IGRS's Library at the SOG on Saturdays.

Cost: £35 (£28 SOG members). Booking is essential, and you'll need to be quick as there are only four spaces left this morning.


UPDATE, 24 June, 5pm: And just like that, they were gone!
