How to Find a Place of Origin for your Irish Ancestor
Anyone who has an Irish ancestor in their family tree is usually eager to find out just where in Ireland they came from. This can be a very difficult task for researchers, given the limited information typically given in historic documents about Irish ancestors, especially those of the famine era. In this presentation, Lisa Dougherty will focus on sources to use here in the U.S. to help identify a place of origin for your Irish ancestor, and hopefully help further your research in Ireland.
