Finding the Irish in Britain  (Webinars)
GoToWebinar with a recording available to all registrants
10:30 AM - Noon CST (UTC-6)
Instructor: Chris Paton
$15 for IGSI members (with Discount Code); $25 for non-members
 
From 1801 to 1922, the modern Republic of Ireland was part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, with Northern Ireland still a member to this day. Various UK repositories contain material that can help to flesh out the stories of those seeking work in Britain which, in some cases, can plug gaps resulting from missing records in Ireland. These include census substitutes such as the Ulster Covenant, British poor law records and removals back to Ireland, civil registration records in Britain; also, for British administered territories overseas, censuses, and other documentary sources.
 
In this session Chris Paton will explore the records of the Irish in Britain, and show how they can be used to further progress our Irish family history research.
 
Registration will open about 90 days before the event. The Discount Code will be sent to members via email and posted on member-only webpage (link).
