Irish Research: Using the Basic Sources Effectively
The year 1922 sends a collective shudder of epic proportions down the spines of people who are tracing their Irish ancestors. That is when the western block of the Four Courts in Dublin, which housed the Public Record Office of Ireland, exploded. Destroyed were what many consider to be the basic sources of Irish genealogical research. This event is the main reason why tracing Irish ancestors is such a challenge. During this class we will discuss the core building blocks of Irish genealogy and learn how to at least partially mitigate the destruction of the genealogical records that were lost.
This presentation was recorded live for the "British Isles" Expo. The individual Research Guide for this class is included with this video. It is available to download as a PDF immediately upon purchase. If you would like a printed copy of the book, British Isles Research Guide, please click here.
