Irish Genealogy Workshop at Cos Cob Library

| No Comments

Dr. Brian Trainor, Research Director with the Ulster Historical Foundation, will present a half-day workshop on Irish Genealogy on Saturday, September 27 in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room from 10:00 AM- 4:00 PM. The program is co-sponsored by Local History at Greenwich Library and the Friends of the Cos Cob Library. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase useful genealogical publications.

Ulster is the northern most of Ireland's four provinces. It is composed of the six counties of Northern Ireland- Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, and Tyrone- and the three border counties of the Irish Republic- Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan.

The program starts with a broad overview of Scots-Irish and Irish research. Using attractive visual aids, it will explore issues such as land divisions, the major collections of records and how to access them. It will benefit beginners and seasoned genealogists alike.

Registration is required- please contact Carl White, Local History Librarian at 203-622-7948. The workshop will take place in the Meeting Room at Greenwich Library from 10:00 AM- 4:00 PM. Those who already have some information on their Irish or Scot-Irish ancestors should indicate the County and/or Town of interest when reserving.
