Meetings of the Reading branch

Event Name


Irish Family History Resources Online by Peter Christian

Irish Family History Resources on the Internet The Irish genealogy world was somewhat slow to embrace the Internet, but the last few years have seen a massive expansion in offerings from all quarters — official, voluntary, and commercial. In addition to the (free) Irish census site, there is an increasing body of church records, both Catholic and Protestant, online. There are plenty of resources, too, to provide help and orientation, especially for those with little first-hand knowledge of Ireland’s geography and genealogy. This talk will provide an overview of the range of resources available online, with a detailed look at the civil registration, census and church records available on the web.

Newspapers for Family History by Ian Waller

We have surely all been sidetracked in our research when looking through the local newspaper however newspapers frequently enable us to put the flesh on the bones and bring our ancestors alive. There is so much information from trade advertisements, court cases, potted histories associated with marriages or obituaries that they are a valuable resource. This talk looks at how to access them in the digital age and examines their usefulness.
