Friday January 13, 2017 at 7:30pm
Meeting at Brandeis University, Mandel Center for the Humanities, Room G3.
(doors open at 7:00pm... a short business meeting at 7:30pm
will be followed by our speaker)
Marie E. Daly and Judith Lucey will discuss their recently published Genealogist's Guide to Irish Research.
Their book offers tips for navigating the sometimes challenging course of finding Irish ancestors.
Using real-life examples and offering many illustrations of records and techniques,
they take a step-by-step approach to using American records to trace Irish ancestors in this country,
with the goal of finding the place of origin. They then explain how to use Irish records to learn even more.
Drawing on their years of experience guiding those with Irish ancestry, Daly and Lucey focus not just on sources
of records but, more important, on strategies for research and interpretation. The book includes to-do lists,
illustrations and maps, a comprehensive table of online resources, and a detailed index.
The talk will be followed by a book signing and TIARA will have books available for purchase.
Future meeting programs will be announced as soon as arrangements are completed.

or on the following Saturday morning at various locations.
