Workshop Summary;

Level II: Intermediate

This workshop will provide participants with an in-depth look at Irish records created during the 1800’s. The Irish Civil Registration process will be explored, including the time period covered by these records and their limitations. The workshop will demonstrate how to use church parish records, Griffith’s Valuation, Tithe Applotment Books, and other early 19th Century sources to uncover your Irish ancestors prior to the start of Civil Registrations. Participants will also develop an understanding of Ireland’s civil and religious jurisdictions and why this knowledge is essential in locating your Irish ancestors. A case study will be used to illustrate the various ways to determine family relationships prior to the start of the Civil Registration process. *Class may be a prerecording presented by one of our Librarians
