Society of Genealogists' online Irish genealogy course starts 2 April

The Society of Genealogists (SoG) is to host an 8-week online Irish family history course starting next week.

Jill Williams FIGRS

Jill Williams, a Fellow of the Irish Genealogical Research Society, will present this new practical course which requires no previous experience with Irish records and will focus on collections available online.

The course will highlight the differences between Irish records and those from English and Welsh sources, and will use two families – one Catholic from county Kerry in the southwest of Ireland, the other Protestant from Ulster in the north of the island – as case studies.

Each online presentation will be followed by an optional short exercise for delegates to undertake at home and a handout covering key websites mentioned in the session.

Video recordings of each weekly class (excluding Q&A elements), will be made available the day after the session and for one month after the course ends.

The course will be held on zoom from 18:30hrs* to 20:30hrs* on Tuesdays, from 2 April to 21 May.

For further details and to book your place on this course, see the SoG website.
