Getting Started with Irish Genealogy Research

Level I: Introductory

This workshop will acquaint participants with the basic genealogical process along with goal-setting, research source selection and documentation requirements. The class will highlight the methods and numerous resources available for discovering Irish ancestry at the McClelland Library. An actual research project will be used to trace the ancestry of an American-born Irish descendant back through three generations to locate the family’s ancestral homeland in Ireland. The session will conclude with a discussion of resources and tools that are useful for genealogical research.
