[CA-SCGS] SCGS Irish Interest Group Quarterly Workshop - Sunday, July 31, 2016

Researching your Irish Ancestors?  Join us!

The SCGS Irish Interest Group will meet Saturday, July 31st from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at the SCGS Family Research Library in Burbank.

We will spend the morning exploring the FindMyPast website.  More and more Irish records are becoming available on the site - some even for FREE.  We will show you how to set up a FREE account for the Irish RC Parish Registers.  Bring your laptop or tablet and try it out!  We will also review strategies to efficiently search for your ancestors. If you do not have a full subscription to FindMyPast, the library offers it free to SCGS members in the library.

In the afternoon we will create research plans that you can put into effect before you leave SCGS.  A plan for research is necessary to organize your research and ensure that you systematically utilize all possible resources.  There are some resources that will apply to all of your Irish ancestors so one master plan can help locate information for several ancestors.  Many resources may be found within the SCGS Library. Barb Randall will lead these activities.

We hope you will join us - Marge Rossini & Barb Randall.
