The SCGS Irish Interest Group will be holding a workshop this month at the SCGS Library, 417 Irving Drive, Burbank, Sunday, August 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Edward McKelvey will discuss some common Irish names, what they mean and where in Ireland they may be common.
Marge Golden Rossini, Irish Interest Group Coordinator, will be discussing land divisions in Ireland and how they effect genealogy. Do you know what a townland is? Or a PLU? or a D.E.D? Come and find out that and more.
You'll also discover what resources SCGS has to help you find out more on these topics.
