Irish Genealogy Lecture Series at the Irish American Heritage Museum: Session II Advanced Irish Genealogy

Once you know where in Ireland your ancestors came from, where do you go from there? Is it necessary to go all the way to Dublin to do research? Join instructor and professional genealogist Lisa Dougherty for a workshop that will acquaint you with Irish records you can use for research, how to access them, and their effective use to find out more about your ancestor's life in Ireland before emigrating to the United States.

This three-part series with our Genealogist-in-Residence Lisa Dougherty will help you discover ways to determine your ancestors' specific place of Irish origin, records to use in Ireland to add details to your family tree, and the meaning behind those ethnicity estimates given with DNA tests! Attendees will have the opportunity to register to win an Ancestry DNA kit, given away at the last session on March 12!  Parking on city streets is FREE after 5pm, you do not need to register to attend. Note: any announcements regarding rescheduling due to inclement weather will be posted on our Facebook page.
