"Researching Genealogical Resources in Ireland Long-distance"
Sunday, September 28th, 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
In their only New York City-area appearance in 2008, two internationally-acclaimed experts
on genealogical research in Ireland - Dr. William Roulston, Research Director of Ulster
Historical Foundation in Belfast, and Dr. Brian Trainor, the Foundation's retired Research
Director and the former Director of the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland - will
present an information-packed afternoon on researching genealogical resources in Ireland
long-distance. The seminar is open to members of the New York Irish History Roundtable and
Drs. Roulston and Trainor will give four lectures that focus on genealogical resources in
a variety of repositories in the thirty-two counties of Northern Ireland and the Republic
of Ireland, including many of the lesser-known resources.
The afternoon will begin with a general introductory lecture, followed by specialized
talks. The lectures are "Introduction to Irish and Scots-Irish Family History Research,"
"The Three Cs: Church Registers, Census Records and Civil Registration Records,"
"Gravestone Inscriptions," and "Not Always at the Bottom of the Pile." Time will be
allotted for questions after each lecture.
The seminar will take place on Sunday, September 28th, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., in the
McNally Amphitheatre of Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center, located at 140 W. 62nd
Street, between Amsterdam and Columbus avenues. Take the A, B, C, D, or 1 subway line to
59th Street-Columbus Circle. The price of admission is $15 for Roundtable members and $20
