GoToWebinar with a recording available to all registrants
10:30 AM - Noon CST (UTC-6)
Instructor: John Grenham

Placename and surname are two of the most important pieces of information for researching Irish family history.
 
Prominent scholar John Grenham returns to explore ways to visualize Irish locations in your record searching by utilizing his newly added map overlays with various record sources: households of surnames in Catholic records, Griffith’s valuation, Irish census records, as well as local records of birth-marriage-deaths. You will learn how the maps were created, and their use and importance to us now in shedding light on Irish ancestral places, surnames and families.

The Mysterious George Hunter: persistence & methodology prevail
GoToWebinar with a recording available to all registrants
10:30 AM - Noon CST (UTC-6)
Instructor: Joe Hunter, professional genealogist
$15 for IGSI members (with Discount Code); $20 for non-members
 
Some ancestors can be so elusive that it seems they may have vanished intentionally. Using alternative methods in your research can compensate for missing and incomplete records by uncovering ‘indirect evidence’ that may help break down those stubborn research mysteries.
 
Applying the Genealogy Proof Standard, we will consider the building blocks for approaching a “brickwall” challenge: a concise research hypothesis, plan, and strategy, the value of a timeline, and solid citations along the way.
