Click poster for details
For the first time, the USA's National Archives is going to host an online Genealogy Fair.

Starting tomorrow at 10am EDT (3pm Dublin time), the two-day virtual fair features live lectures, a telephone help line and online chat. Speakers include genealogy experts from the National Archives and U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services, and handouts are already available for the lectures.

The lecture programme will showcase tips and techniques for using Federal records at the National Archives for genealogy research. Lectures are designed for experienced family history professionals and novices alike and, while the programme doesn't include talks specifically aimed at Irish genealogy, all researchers with ancestral connections in the USA are likely to find something of interest in the programme.
