  Beginners Talk Irish and Scottish research

The usual problem for those of us with Irish ancestors is the lack of information on the origin of our forebears, apart from 'born in Ireland' on a census return. Carol Well's talk gives help and advice showing how to start your Irish research plus the various records which are available to help you locate that elusive place of birth.

Research into Scottish ancestors is also an area requiring a rather different approach. Ina Penneyston from the Society’s Anglo-Scottish branch will aim to put beginners on the right path and look at the increasing amount of data that is available.

These talks are aimed at people new to family history research or those who simply wish to refresh their knowledge. Talks will normally be held in the Performance Space on the ground floor of Manchester Central Library on Saturday mornings from 10.30am until approximately 12.30pm.. The talks are free to Society members but non-members are most welcome to attend for a small charge of £3.00  (refundable for anyone who joins on the day).

Booking is recommended and helps in planning. An online booking facility is available on our web site at www.mlfhs.org.uk  (Click on the ‘Eventbrite’ link) or alternatively telephone us on 0161-234 1060 or e-mail office@mlfhs.org.uk

Participants may attend any or all of these topics as desired. It is expected that we will run these on a regular basis, depending on demand.
