New Autumn term of genealogy classes

Booking is now open for the new term of my beginner’s genealogy class in Malahide Community School. Walk-in enrolment will take place on Monday 16th September 2019 and I’ll be on site to answer any questions you may have. Classes will start on Tuesday 17th September and run for 10 weeks with a midterm break at the end of October.

DNA testing is increasingly employed in tracing your ancestry and we’ll be devoting plenty of time to this aspect. Whether you’re thinking of taking a test or you’ve already taken one and need help analysing, don’t worry, we’ll cover it all.

Researching your family tree is a growing hobby.  This class teaches you where to begin with Irish sources like the census, birth, death and marriage certificates, then progresses to parish registers, newspapers, wills, land records and the military. No prior knowledge is required but ability to use a computer & the internet is essential, as many genealogy records are now online.
