Advanced Irish genealogy course starts at National Library in March

The National Library of Ireland will again be hosting Sean Murphy's Advanced course in Genealogy this spring. It starts on 9 March, runs for eight weeks on Wednesday afternoons, and classes will be held online.

Being an advanced course, participants are expected to have some prior knowledge of research sources.

The course aims to guide students in the use of more advanced genealogical sourses such as memorial inscriptions, wills, deeds, the National Library and Genealogical Office manuscripts collections, newspapers, directories, occupation/Service records, and Landed Estate Papers etc.

At the end of the course, students should be able to use these advanced sources to further their own family history and use them to research propertied families. All students are encouraged to compile a portfolio of records and notes on the history of a chosen family.

The course fee is €100 and places are limited. The last class will be held on Wednesday 27 April.
