If you are doing Irish research and haven't visited the library collection of the Irish Genealogical Society International (IGSI) at the Minnesota Genealogy Center (MGC), you may be working too hard at trying to find what is readily available at the library.

The 3000+ items of the IGSI research collection are housed in the Hoffman Research Library along with the collections of the Minnesota Genealogical Society, its branches and other affiliates. Research collections of other Minnesota-based ethnic groups are part of the 20,000+ volume library: Canadian, Czechoslovakian, English-Welsh, Finnish, Norwegian, Ostfriesland, Polish, Pommern, Swedish. You will find, in one convenient location, a wide variety of Minnesota, U.S. and international resources. What American-Irish family doesn't include some non-Irish?
