Irish Property Records: An Overview  (Webinars)
GoToWebinar - from the comfort and safety of your own home
10:30 AM - Noon CDT (UTC-5)
Instructor: John Grenham
$15 for IGSI members (with Discount Code sent in member email); $20 for non-members
 
Property leaves traces long after people vanish. This talk looks at historic Irish institutions that recorded property transactions (The Registry of Deeds) and that created property tax records (The Valuation Office).They are two of the oldest intact record-holding institutions in Ireland and both provide (relatively) unbroken chains of evidence reaching back into the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

The talk outlines their history, the key records they hold and how to interpret them and, most importantly, how to get at them, especially online. Forthcoming developments in both will also be described.

GoToWebinar - from the comfort and safety of your own home
10:30 AM - Noon CDT (UTC-5)
Instructor: James Ryan
$15 for IGSI members (with Discount Code sent in member email); $20 for non-members
 
This talk outlines the origins and structure of the names of Irish places and explains the historical reasons for the variations in place names encountered in Irish records, caused by a process of anglicization of Irish or Gaelic place names over a long period. We will also outline the land divisions and places that required naming, and the practices that applied in this process.
 
It will also show key sources that are available to help in finding currently accepted placenames; and the books and websites available to provide the details of the locations of places; the name variations that applied; and maps of different scales and vintages. For each source the type of information contained will be shown, and how these reference sources can be found.

Millions of U.S. passenger arrival records are available online; even more are not yet indexed from ships’ passenger manifests stored on microfilm at the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration.  How can you tell when your ancestor came to the North America? Searching ship’s manifests and other historical records may provide you with clues about an ancestor’s date and ship of arrival in the U.S.  Major resources for finding U.S. (and some Canadian) immigration information will be discussed and listed in the class handout with links to online repositories and helpful online how-to reading materials.
