May 2023 Meeting

May 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Finding Records for Your Irish Ancestors Using RootsIreland.ie

You don’t have to visit Ireland to research your ancestors from the Emerald Isle! The Irish Family History Foundation website (www.rootsireland.ie) strives to make basic family history records available to descendants of the Irish world-wide online. Professional genealogist Lisa Dougherty will offer suggestions and tips on how to best use the resources of the IFHF to trace your elusive Irish ancestor!

Presented by Lisa Dougherty
