Newport – Tracing Irish Ancestry

A good attendance listened carefully to a thorough review of Irish records from Diane Brook on 26 April. Certainly we heard about the problems- records, particularly censuses, destroyed by fire, incredible inconsistencies of spellings and the difficulty of finding records unless one has a knowledge of the relevant parishes.

However there were very encouraging aspects with records becoming more available on line and now often free of charge.

Certainly, particularly thanks to an excellent handout containing all the references and web addresses, we were encouraged to give Irish research a trial.
