Tomorrow is 'Irish Saturday' in St Paul

Minnesota Genealogical Library will be holding an Irish Saturday tomorrow, 8 September, hosted by the Irish Genealogical Society International (IGSI).

The library, which holds such an event most months, is staffed by experienced researchers from the IGSI who work with less-experienced family historians to acquiant them with the library and its collection, teach them the tools of basic Irish research, and help them to use Griffiths Valuation, Irish Origins, maps and other resources.

Tomorrow's event will see a special class that's designed for those who want to find out more about their ancestor's immigration ie how to search for immigration papers, where and when to look and what you might find on passenger lists. The instructor will be Linda Miller.

Cost: Class – $10 IGSI members, $15 non-members. Library – free to IGSI members, $10 non-members.
Venue: Minnesota Genealogical Society Library, 1185 Concord St N, South St Paul, MN.
Time: Class 10.30am to noon. Library open 10am to 4pm.
