Genealogy Workshop: Finding Your Irish Roots with Ed McGuire
March 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Vermont Genealogy Library and the Burlington Irish Heritage Festival are again hosting an in-person presentation by Ed McGuire entitled “Researching Your Irish Ancestors.” This talk will provide a brief history of Irish immigration to North America and then discuss some of the major problems facing researchers. Ed will discuss techniques for finding your ancestors’ parish, and he will highlight the major record sets in Ireland. The talk will also cover major new collections that have recently come online and provide a handout with links to resources. A Q&A period will follow.
Ed McGuire is part of a group of library members who focus on Irish research, and he speaks often on this topic. His great-grandparents came to Connecticut from counties Donegal, Limerick and Kilkenny.
