Topic: Beginning Irish Genealogy
 
"Beginning Irish Genealogy" will help participants interested in researching their ancestors "over the pond".  Beginning with information that can be unearthed here in the United States, presenter Cathy Cottone plans to detail pieces of the paper trail that may provide clues as to where your Irish ancestors may have lived in Ireland.  This paper trail may include documentation for births, baptisms, marriages, naturalizations and deaths.
 
This program will show different resources and examples of that paper trail that will hopefully help participants segway into researching directly from Irish resources - including websites of interest that will be discussed. 
 
Cathy Cottone has followed the "paper trail" of her ancestors since 1991 and hopes her experiences will help you find the "golden nugget" that will help you in your research!
