Using Google Earth Pro, Griffith's Valuation & Irish Townlands to Map the Land of Your Ancestors
Saturday, March 25
Using Google Earth Pro, Griffith's Valuation & Irish Townlands to Map the Land of Your Ancestors  (Webinars)
GoToWebinar with a recording available to all registants
10:30 AM - Noon CST (UTC-6)
Instructor: Joe Hunter
$15 for IGSI members (with Discount Code); $25 for non-members
 
Researching the specific location of Irish Ancestors is challenging. The creative use of online databases, coupled with free software, affords researchers the opportunity to pinpoint townlands and the locations where distant ancestors actually lived and worked.
 
For researchers who plan on visiting Ireland, and even those who may not, the ability to see the actual location can provide important research insight, and even stories. Joe has been researching his family history for the last 24 years, having traced all (16) of his 2X great grandparents back to Ireland. Joe has utilized his research to obtain dual citizenship with Ireland, and participated in a research trip with New England Historic Genealogy Society (NHGS) to the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) in 2012.

Movement from the United States to Canada was unrestricted and unrecorded until April 1908. The U.S. only began recording the entry of Canadians along its northern border in 1894. Before that, many thousands of people, including our Celtic ances-tors, lived cross-border lives without visas, work permits, passports, or immigration records. Learn how to find these elusive ancestors.
