4th Feb 2023 Betty Vanderlande spoke to us about Beginning Irish Research and Trying to Solve Brick Walls; this talk focused on online resources.
She demonstrated the way to use some of the free websites and where to look online for help articles, then we had a quick look at the pay-per-view sites.
This was followed up by a list of resources available online from The National Archives of Ireland, The National Library of Ireland and the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland.
Lastly she reminded us to check out our libraries and Family History Societies.
