“Scots-Irish, Who are They and How to Find the Records,” By Diane Barbour, PLCGS

July 7, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm


This talk includes the history of Northern Ireland from the Plantation in 1610 to the present. We will discuss record groups from the 1600’s and 1700’s that will help you find your Irish ancestors in all of Ireland. Ireland was always one country until 1922. The records before this date are available for the entire country. A case study will be used to explain how many of these record groups were used to get family information.
