On a recent tour to Ireland by a group of Americans doing genealogical research the number one regret cited in the post trip survey was that they did not do enough research in the United States on their Irish ancestors. Don’t repeat their mistakes! Use the resources we have on this side of the Atlantic before you make the trip of a lifetime to the Emerald Isle. The goal of this lecture is to give you a toolkit to get you started on the road to finding a place of origin for your Irish ancestor. Irish research is challenging for a wide variety of reasons in comparison to other ethnic groups, but not impossible as some may believe.

There are several ways of getting hold of Irish BMD records and many of them are completely free of charge. Civil Registration started for Non-Catholics in 1845 (8 years after England) and for Catholics in 1864. The index to these Civil Records is available for free via both FamilySearch.org and IrishGenealogy.ie. The actual certificates (for certain years only) can be obtained for free from your local LDS Centre. Others can be ordered from the GRO for a small fee. Church Records have much less coverage and only some parishes have records that go back into the 1700s. Rootsireland.ie has the largest database of family records in Ireland and a monthly subscription rate. IrishGenealogy.ie is completely free of charge and has church records for select locations only - Dublin, Carlow, Cork & Kerry only. The IGI (International Genealogical Index) also has some records that have been contributed by LDS members. Also, the recent digitisation of the Catholic Church Register Books by the NLI (National Library of Ireland) and their indexing by FindMyPast is another welcome addition to our genealogical toolkit. These and and other sources will be explored and there will be plenty of hints and tips for navigating the various websites. This was presented as part of The Surname Society's inaugural virtual conference.

Another million fled Ireland and settled in Scotland and England during the second half of the 19th century. The new poor law records of Scotland contain incredible genealogical information about the people who ended up in this welfare system. This webinar will review the records one can find.

Three of the main Irish genealogical resources of key importance to those tracing their Irish ancestors are census returns, church records, and civil registration (vital records). Although pre-1901 census records were almost completely destroyed and church records also suffered from either a lack of record keeping or destruction, much still exists. This presentation is an overview of surviving censuses and census substitutes, church records and civil registration.
