Presentation: Researching Your Irish Ancestors

March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Vermont Genealogy Library and the BIHF 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 will provide a handout with links to resources. A Q&A period and library tour 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.

Location: The NEW location of the Vermont Genealogy Library: 57 River Rd, Route 117, Essex Junction, VT. For directions go to:  or call 802-871-5647.
