Irish Records Research by Dave MacCabe

Family history research in Ireland is sometimes challenging but not overwhelming. This topic includes a discussion of 14 key record sources and a summary of what’s available online and in key US and Irish locations. We will also cover some strategies on finding your ancestor’s location in Ireland and overcoming some common brick walls.

English Records Research by Jane Schwendinger

Because the parishes kept such good records for Birth, Marriage, and Death, researching your family in England can be fairly easy, if you have some information about where your ancestors lived, or who the family members were. Without some sort of identifying information, it can be difficult. We will look at what records are available in different time frames and sources for finding the records.
