 MCGS General Meeting at 1:30PM

Beyond the Basics of Irish Research

Claire E. Keenan will present “Beyond the Basics of Irish Research”. If her name is familiar, it may be because she spoke to MCGS previously in September 2012. Or it may be because she is a speaker in demand in Philadelphia/ New York/Central New Jersey genealogy circles.

“Beyond the Basics” will take up where her earlier talk at MCGS left off, focusing on Irish records, whether you access them here in the US or, if you are lucky enough, in Ireland. After a brief review of the basics, Claire will present detailed information about the Tithe Applotments and Griffith's Valuation, before delving into less well known areas such as Ordinance Survey Memoirs, Canceled Land Books/ Annual Revisions, Estate Records, and Wills and Administrations.

Claire has been a professional genealogist since 2000, specializing in 19th and 20th century US records and Irish and English research, as well as copyright and other legal issues that affect genealogists. She has researched Irish records extensively in the US and in Ireland, both for her own family and for clients. She is Vice President of the Genealogical Society of New Jersey and a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists and various US, Irish, and English genealogy societies.
