Irish Ancestors, Irish Lives: explore their world in this online course

An interesting Irish genealogy and history course, hosted by the Society of Genealogists, will be held online on Wednesday evenings over six weeks starting on 2 June. Each weekly session will run from 6pm to 8pm (GMT+1).

Called Irish Ancestors, Irish Lives, the course is as much about helping researchers to understand the daily lives, social issues and concerns of their Irish ancestors as it is about finding and successfully exploiting relevant historical and genealogical records, both common and lesser-known sources.

It will be presented by Jill Williams and Roz McCutcheon, both of them Fellows of the Irish Genealogical Research Society, and both experienced and popular speakers at the SOG and elsewhere.

Their workshops and courses nearly are nearly always fully booked, so if this sounds just like the type of course you've been looking for to help you understand the lives of your forbears, and how to progress your research, I'd suggest you book quickly.

The cost of the six-week course is £112.50, discounted to £90 for SOG members. You'll find out more about the course, including the topics to be presented at each session, on the SOG site.
