Learning how to be Irish

Being Irish

DNA results recently revealed to me a surprising revelation. I’m Irish. A lot Irish.

I’ve just begun to search this lineage. It’s been interesting to say the least.

Do you know what I’ve discovered? Irish genealogy research is hard.

Missing census records from 1821 to 1891 due to fire and destruction require thinking outside the box.

So, I was happy when I received the schedule of sessions for RootsTech2018. Lots of Irish genealogy sessions! I’m going to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about alternative records for Irish genealogy.

I’m liking this session especially. The best part of genealogy is the ability for me to do it while I am in my jammies if I choose. This beginners session looks like it will break it all down for me as to what is available out there so that I can start putting together an Irish online research toolbox.


I’ve started going through the entire RootsTech2018 schedule…my secret geeky pleasure. I’ll mark all the sessions that I’m interested in. I love the RootsTech mobile app, so when that is ready for 2018, I’ll build my daily schedule.

Check out all the sessions that will be happening at RootsTech 2018 Schedule. What is your research interest?

DISCLAIMER: I am a RootsTech2018 ambassador. One of my responsibilities as an ambassador is to promote the RootsTech 2018 conference before, during and after. I’ll be recounting my process in preparing to attend the conference.
