What's New In Irish Family History Research
Saturday, March 9
What's New In Irish Family History Research  (Meetings)
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
South Wing Reading Room, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main Branch, 4400 Forbes Avenue, 15213
Many family history researchers have been frustrated and given up finding their Irish ancestors, whether in the Republic of Ireland or in Northern Ireland. The consensus has been for many years that all searching will do is lead to a headache and a dead end. Rebecca Kichta Miller will provide the details to show you how to methodically search the newest resources, whether online or in repositories that will require travel or at least some correspondence. Then, she will provide information on how to locate the latest resources to find those long-lost Irish ancestors. This program will also include updated material from the "Tracing Your Irish Ancestors" program she presented on March 8, 2014, program.  Free and open to the public.

So, you’ve spent the money, spit in a tube or scrapped your cheek with a very long Q-Tip, sent it off for analysis, and the results are back. What were the results? Did they give you addresses of long lost relatives? Did you find a sister that you never knew you had? If yes, how wonderful for you!!!! If no, where do you go from here? This session will give you information to get moving in the right direction to figure out what is real and what is not, and what to do with the information now. ‚Äč
