I’ve been neglecting my genealogy research the last few years just doing a little here and there but I had the opportunity to attend an all day Irish genealogy seminar so I signed up a few weeks ago and attended the conference today.
It was hard to get up out of bed since I hadn’t slept at all. Keith suggested I skip the conference but I wasn’t going to miss this rare opportunity to attend a conference where the lecturers were actually from Ireland and able to share first hand knowledge so I headed out early this morning.
I’ve been pretty fortunate to find the information I have on my Irish ancestors but they’re adding new records all the time. I’d found a transcription of my great grandfather’s death record but now I could see the actual written record including the cause of death which was not available to me before.
Since I was not familiar with the terminology used, I looked it up.
I’ve started going back through the generations looking for more info. In the green handout, there are lots of references and websites listed.
