Presentation – Irish Estate Records
Presented by Ann Lawthers
Land records are a critical part of Irish family history research. As many public records were destroyed in 1922, land records become a bright spot in Irish genealogical research. Irish estate records, in particular, can provide important information about your tenant and land-holding ancestors in the 17th and 18th centuries. With few digitized or indexed, and in no central location, they can be tricky to locate. Learn what you might find in estate records and how to track them down.

She lectures regularly on behalf of American Ancestors at conferences, workshops, and meetings. At American Ancestors she collaborates with other expert staff to develop multi-week online and in-person seminars and lectures. Ann focuses on New England and Mid-Atlantic research, and migration patterns. Secondary interests include the Southern Colonies and Atlantic Canada.
