Hi all

I'm delighted to announce that Aileen, one of our members - with a lot of interest and contacts in the Irish genealogical world! - will give a talk on tracing your family tree.

Aileen will cover: what genealogy/family history is, starting with what you know, moving on to the 1901/1911 census, a bit about birth marriage and death records - civil & church and finish with a discussion on using the internet, both for research and saving research. She'll also mention some classes for those who want to keep it up or progress their knowledge.

    Many thanks to all of you who were there tonight. I hope you learnt something new and it wasn't too basic. I really enjoyed sharing your questions. Thanks especially to Ber for introducing me to the group and to Christine for inviting me to speak and organising the evening.

    Hi Aileen, I've been researching my family tree for years, so if you need a hand let me know.

    June 24, 2013

    • Aileen

      Hi Mary, That's great. I appreciate the help. No matter how long we research, there's always someone who knows other things. Between the two of us, we should be able to cover anything the beginner wants to know... and maybe a bit more.

      June 25, 2013

    • Mary b.

      hi Aileen, just let me know what I can do. Maybe we should met up before hand.
