FREE Irish Genealogy Webinars

Now through Wednesday March 18th, you can view three Irish genealogy-related webinars from the library of over 200 recorded webinars at Legacy Family Tree Webinars!

  • The Three Cs of Irish Research: Civil Registration, Church Records, and Census: Three of the main Irish genealogical resources of key importance to those tracing their Irish ancestors are census returns, church records, and civil registration (vital records). Although pre-1901 census records were almost completely destroyed and church records also suffered from either a lack of record keeping or destruction, much still exists. This presentation is an overview of surviving censuses and census substitutes, church records and civil registration.
  • Breaking Down Your Irish Brick Wall: Irish Estate Records:   Where do you turn when you can’t find your Irish ancestors in civil registration, church records or what few censuses survive? Experienced researchers dive right in to the Irish estate records. There is a surprising array of material in estate records that can be used to document the tenants who lived on the estates that covered rural Ireland. In this webinar you will learn how to identify the estate where your ancestor lived, repositories where estate records might be found, and what types of records were kept.
  • Some Lesser Known Irish Resources: This webinar is an overview of some lesser known Irish resources that may provide additional information about your Irish ancestors. Some of the sources that will be discussed include school records, taxation sources and court records.
