Accessing Irish Records from North America
With Richard M. Doherty
Richard M. Doherty
We hear much about the vast destruction of Irish records during the shelling and fire in the Public Record Office in Dublin in 1922. However, there are many Irish genealogical sources that have survived.
Richard M. Doherty will present a lecture about the major sources of genealogical information in Ireland, and methods for accessing these records from North America in the Kantzler Community Room at Wirt Library, 500 Center Ave. in Bay City, on Saturday, June 29, 2-3 pm.
The focus will be on the use of online databases and the microfilm holdings of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. The event is free, but registration is required at 989-893-9566 ext. 2200
