The webinar examines the history and origins of Irish surnames – native Irish, Scottish, English, Welsh, Huguenot, Viking, Gallowglass and Jewish. If you don’t know where in Ireland your ancestors originated, we’ll include tips to help you to narrow down the location. First names often followed a traditional naming pattern and this can help to build your family tree. We’ll use case studies using traditional naming patterns to show how this worked. There are some naming traditions that were used in particular by the Ulster Scots that again can help to expand your family tree and we’ll also cover the Latin names sometimes used in Roman Catholic records.
