Townland Of Origin blog explores North American collections for Irish family history records, the blog of professional genealogist Joe Buggy, aims to help US and Canadian researchers locate details of their Irish ancestral home through North American record collections. It's one of my regular reads, and I want to highlight a couple of Joe's recent blogposts that shouldn't be missed:
Joe's book Finding your Irish ancestors in New York City was written while he was still living in the USA, but he's now back in Ireland (working with ProGenealogists in Dublin) and will be presenting a talk – Ten free websites for US genealogical research – at the National Library of Ireland on Tuesday 6 September at 1pm.
