**DATE HAD TO CHANGE DUE TO THE NEW YORK IRISH CENTER UNDERGOING UNPLANNED RENOVATIONS**
**I WILL KEEP RSVPS AS THEY ARE, PLEASE UPDATE SHOULD YOUR PLANS CHANGE - BUT HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!**
*This is geared to the beginner level*
In this hands on workshop and using laptops and the internet, the group will gain a brief overview on Irish genealogy research, then together will build a family tree for a well known Irish figure. Participants will learn the basics regarding what information is key to begin one's family history, recommended steps to gain this information via online and offline, free and paid resources. Then in the last part of the workshop participants will be invited to start building their family history with guidance and recommendations from the workshop leader (me!)
Requirements: Interest in genealogy (!), a laptop (although there is potentially a few that may be lent out if requests are made in advance), paper, pen.
The workshop is free, although donations to the New York Irish Center are welcome.
Limited space: 20 participants only.
