Irish ancestry? Jump in now!
March 9 @ 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
$25 – $40
There’s an air of mystery surrounding Irish research, but why not ‘Jump in Now’?
In this presentation, Bobbie Edes will demonstrate the various online records now available as well as different ways to get around some of the issues of missing records.
Join Bobbie as she explains why you should Jump In Now and tackle that ‘too hard’ family line. Following the talk, there will be a hands-on session so numbers are strictly limited and pre-booking online is a must. Members are welcome to bring along their own laptops so they can bookmark some of the sites mentioned.
Presenter: Bobbie Edes
Starting her research in the mid 1990s, Bobbie was initially told to forget about Ireland as it was all destroyed in the Dublin bombings. Instead she traced and visited elderly members of her extended family, borrowed and copied many photographs and visited local cemeteries and archives. Within a few years of beginning her genealogy addiction, Bobbie tackled some overseas archives to extend her research.
Since that point Bobbie has made numerous trips to the UK and researched in many Records Offices throughout England and Ireland. She normally makes a point of spending two full weeks in each of them and has a never ending ‘to do’ list ready for that next overseas journey.
Join Bobbie as she shares her extensive and broad knowledge of how to go about genealogy in the correct manner, learning about new avenues for internet searching along the way.
