I have identified two lines in my family tree that are Irish. I am excited to learn how to do Irish research this fall (because I haven’t really started yet) at the British Institute in Salt Lake City. The institute is taking place 15 – 19 October 2018 at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, Salt Lake City, Utah
On the topic of Irish research, this opportunity slid across my news feed recently: the Irish Genealogy Virtual Conference. You can read more about it here.
The schedule is as follows:
9:00 – Fintan Mullan presents Finding 17th Century Families in Ireland
10:15 – Gillian Hunt presents Using Church Records for Irish Genealogy Research
11:30 – Fiona Fitzsimons presents Finding Women in the Irish Records
12:30 – break
1:00 – Chris Paton presents Using Irish Land Records for Genealogy Research
2:15 – Maurice Gleeson presents Making Online Resources Work for You
The website states: The virtual conference starts at 9 am (Eastern) with presentations being delivered in pre-recorded webinar format. Presentations are made available in sequence. After one presentation ends, another becomes available. Also, the webinars are available for 72 hours to accommodate time zone differences.
At $79 CAD (about $64 US if my conversion is correct) for five presentations, this seems like an easy choice for me! If you are interested in learning more about Irish research, this sounds like a great conference that you can attend from home. For more information, visit their website: https://www.genealogyvic.com

Learning Irish Genealogy requires a MANDATORY trip to Ireland. Enjoy! My wife is second generation Irish, all her grandparents were born in Ireland.
It is definitely on my life’s to-do list! And for sure once I figure out exactly where they came from.
