What do I need to know before I move onto Irish records? How and where do I find the information I need? This workshop will be good for anyone researching Irish ancestors, even if they are just starting their research, as it will review how to find the records in this country that they need. For those who have been researching for a while, hopefully between us, we can find new ways of uncovering the elusive info!  Contact Joan for a reservation to this Mentoring session!
