Tracing your people – last few spaces

If you were planning to attend the Tracing Your People Conference hosted by Cork Genealogical Society and Cork City Archives on Saturday 31 March, you better book your space quickly.

Only 20 places remain, and it is expected the event will be fully booked by the end of this week.

This is hardly surprising, given the calibre of the speakers and the subject of their lectures:

  • JOHN GRENHAM: Major irish records – what's there and what's not.

  • TONY MC CARTHY: Family history research when you hit the brick wall.

  • ROSALEEN UNDERWOOD: Sources for Cork merchant banking families.

  • BRIAN MCGEE: Sources for family history at Cork City & County Archives.

  • WENDY QUIRKE LDS: Family search.org – something for everyone, from beginner to wiki users

  • GERRY WHITE: Researching an ancestor who served in the Great War.

  • DECLAN CHALMERS: Arranging and presenting genealogy data.

The event will be held at the Ambassador Hotel, Military Hill, Cork, from 9.15am to 5pm. It is free, but booking is essential. More details.
