MCGS Meeting: The Luck of the Irish: How to Overcome the Record Losses and Find Your Ancestors.  (MCGS Monthly Meeting)
6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Note: We will be meeting in this new location until the Library remodel is complete!
Presenter: Bernard N. Meisner, MCGS Webmaster
Access to Irish genealogy records has improved substantially in the past twenty years.  Although almost all the 19th century census records no longer exist, Irish archives have been proactive in improving the access to existing records, including census substitutes.  This presentation will focus on the four primary record sources: existing census records, civil registrations, church records, and land records.  Prior to attempting to locate records about your family in Ireland it is essential to conduct an exhaustive search of U.S. records to identify your ancestor’s home town and religion.  Because many Irish names were so common it is also important to ensure you are searching for the correct family.
