Join us for this FREE webinar sponsored by the Southern California Genealogical Society.

This presentation will look at a variety of ways to organize information with the intent on noticing information and trends that were not obvious, preparing the researcher to present their information to others, and assisting the researching in seeing gaps in their research.
The overall goal of the lecture is to give attendees a practical guide to finding the origins of their Irish ancestors in a broad overview lecture. The lecture will start with the central event in the history of Irish genealogy, the destruction of the Public records Office in Dublin on June 30, 1922 near the end of the Irish Civil War. As a result unique challenges and realistic expectations for Irish ancestral research will be discussed. Existing vital records and census records along with unique census substitutes for 19th century Ireland will be presented. Research materials available on-line and through film rental will be shown with examples available without the time and expense necessary to travel to Ireland. Irish Protestants and resources and record repositories in Ireland will not be covered.
