Celtic Connections Conference – Minneapolis, 5-6 Aug

Online registration is now available for the Celtic Connections Conference – Celtic Roots Across America – which will take place in Minneapolis on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 August.

Hosted by the Irish Genealogical Society International (IGSI) and The Irish Ancestral Research Association (TIARA), this will be the second time this conference has been held.

I heard good reports of last year's event, and this summer's programme will see a similar spread of Celtic cultural interests exploring genealogy, history, music and literature.

It has a stellar line up of genealogy specialists, including John Grenham MAGI, Brian Mitchell MAGI, Dr William Roulston, Brian Donovan and Professor Bruce Durie.

The full programme is now available on the dedicated CelticConnections.org site, along with details of the discounted Early Bird Registration offer which ends on 31 May and costs only $150.

The conference will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis, just outside downtown Minneapolis.
