As the summer draws to a close, people often look to evening classes to learn a new skill or pass the darker evenings. For almost a decade, I’ve been teaching a beginners’ Irish genealogy class in Malahide Community School. In this time, I’ve helped over many people begin or further their ancestry.
I am excited to announce that this Autumn’s term will be available both in person and online. For many years, people have asked about the availability of this class online, and it hasn’t been possible before, but because of CoVID-19, we have adapted.
The class has been newly revamped for this term. It begins on 6th October for 8 weeks.
I will teach you where to begin with Irish sources like the census, birth, death and marriage certificates, then progress to parish registers, newspapers, wills, land records and the military. No prior knowledge is required but ability to use a computer and the internet is essential, as many genealogy records are now online.
There are a limited number of places available for those who wish to attend in person, but many more for those who prefer to attend from home. It will take place on Tuesday evenings for 90 minutes, starting at 19:45. The course costs €90.
You can enrol now online here.
