Tracing Your Immigrant Ancestor to Ireland


For many Irish-Americans, all they know is their ancestor “came from Ireland” but they have no further information than that. This talk gives an overview of the various techniques & records available in the US (and elsewhere) that can be used to help trace your ancestor back to where they came from in Ireland. These include shipping records, emigration records, but also surname dictionaries and distribution maps.

This was presented as part of the Unlock the Past - Seattle seminar on September 6, 2018.
