Many people believe that researching Irish ancestors is impossible because of the destruction of the Public Record Office in 1922. While many records were destroyed, others survived and large collections have come online in recent years.

Join Fintan Mullan (Executive Director of the Ulster Historical Foundation) at the start of his Australia & New Zealand lecture tour to learn how to get the most out of Irish resources and records, gain strategies for breaking down brick walls, and grasp important historical context that may help fill in gaps in your research.

Although Fintan is based in Belfast, the lectures will cover information of relevance to the whole of Ireland.

Fintan is instrumental in setting up and running the www.rootsireland.ie website.

Whether you are just beginning your Irish research or have been at it for years, you won’t want to miss these workshops.

These sessions are hosted by the Irish Interest Group Lower North Island.

The entrance to the hall is in Hill Street.
