TALK & DEMO: Irish Laces, Lives & Livelihoods
Just learned of this free talk & demo as part of NY’s textile month: Fiona Harrington, a lacemaker will provide a talk on the history and development of lace in her native Ireland. She’ll then follow with a demonstration of Kenmare needle lace and Carrickmacross lace. Hope to see you there!

What we're about

Meet other local family history fans who are interested in learning about genealogy and researching their family history.

A NYC based informal and fun group intended to gather together to share tips, exchange information, celebrate their Irish / British heritage, hear from experts, become fascinated by history, discoveries and fun - with hopes there may be some neat discoveries about your family history along the way!

Whether you are fan of genealogy, history, Irish / British culture or are interested in learning more different aspects of history and/or the city - or any combination thereof - this is the group for you. This is open to everyone. Simply: you just need to have an interest in genealogy and/or history!
