Part Number: WXBRITIRSH_

Price: $9.95
Ireland was England’s oldest colony, so many assume the records will be the same. They are not precisely because the two country’s histories and their relationship to each other were different. We all know about the terrible loss of Irish records, but there are great treasure troves of surviving records which don’t exist in England - records about war, rebellion, security and land control. So while there are great obstacles (record loss, language, differing histories), there is a great wealth of resources rarely accessed by genealogists. This talk will examine these differences in records and research techniques between Britain and Ireland, why Irish records were created, or destroyed, and how they can be used to unlock your past.

Got English ancestors? Don't miss this webinar by Claire Brisson-Banks, an accredited genealogist (AG) in English research. English civil, church, and census records make doing research back to 1837 feasible. Pre-1837 research requires more skill and a greater knowledge of the variety of little-known resources which can take you back to the 1600’s and earlier. Add to that the variety of Internet resources and English research becomes a joy to perform.
