Place of Birth Ireland: How can I Find out More? A half-day course on 7 February

Over the centuries, one of Ireland’s greatest exports has been its people.  This has taken many guises be it voluntarily to travel the world, to explore seeking fame and fortune, economic migrants, trade, colonise, govern or forcibly transported, to fight or to garrison some far off settlement.   It is estimated that there are over one million people of Irish birth in Britain today, plus numerous second, third or fourth generation Irish. The major challenge to those of us with Irish ancestors is to determine their actual place of birth, without this it is nigh on impossible to undertake any research within Ireland, even if you trying to research a fairly uncommon surname.

A half-day course on Saturday, 7 February (10:30-13:00) with Maggie Loughran. Cost  £20.00/£16.00 SoG Members. Places should be pre-booked, through our website or by telephone: 020 7553 3290. Do you have a question? email the events department.
