New from UHF: Online Irish Genealogy Essentials course

The Ulster Historical Foundation is offering an online Irish Genealogy Essentials course. Its aim is to help beginners and rusty intermediates get to grip with research techniques, archives and genealogical sources in Ireland, and to provide them with the information and skills needed to find their elusive Irish and Scots-Irish ancestors.

This new course takes all the key components of the UHF's traditional in-person course and makes them available digitally, allowing participants to complete the programme at their own pace and from the comfort of their own home.

It consists of 21 pre-recorded lectures on essential topics relating to Irish genealogical research. These provide more than 28 hours of content and participants have 24/7 access to them from today until 24 March. Additionally, four live Q&A sessions will be held with the course lectures, and these will be scheduled at different times to suit the time zones of delegates. The course also includes downloadable lecture handouts and reading list.
