American Ancestors Online Conference Researching Northern Irish Ancestors

Online Conference Researching Northern Irish Ancestors
Live Q & A: March 20, 2021, 2:00–3:30 PM (EDT) Access to recordings, handouts, and other materials starting March 12, 2021, through June 30, 2021 Presented by Experts at American Ancestors Cost: $125
The Scots-Irish have been migrating from Northern Ireland to the United States and Canada since the early 18th century. As with any genealogical research, there are challenges to researching your Northern Irish ancestors—finding their exact origins, sifting through common names, working through record loss—but there is a way forward! This online conference aims to provide you with historical context, record overview, and research strategies to not only make real headway in your family history research, but also provide you with a better understanding of your ancestors’ daily lives. This conference will focus on the six counties within Northern Ireland (Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, and Tyrone), and provide some suggestions for researching in the three additional counties within Ulster Province (Cavan, Donegal, and Monaghan).

This online conference includes access to five pre-recorded 60-minute classes; exclusive access to handouts, templates, and other materials; and an in-depth Q&A session with the instructors.
