Genealogist and Librarian Nancy Strickland will present “Tracing Your Irish Ancestors” at the August 4 program of the Southern Indiana Genealogical Society. Researching your Irish ancestors has always been difficult. Researchers must find the origin of the Irish ancestor within the records here. Once that has been done, researching the ancestor in Ireland is becoming easier to do without going to Ireland, with the recent release of many Irish records online. Nancy’s program will include tips on researching the ancestor here in the United States, what Irish resources are available, and which resources are available online.
Nancy Strickland has a degree from Indiana University. She has been doing genealogy research for over 30 years, and has done research in Ireland. She has worked in the Indiana Room at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library for over ten years, is the Floyd County Genealogist, and volunteers at the Family History Center. She enjoys teaching, and has done presentations for local schools, businesses, clubs, and the Louisville Genealogical Society, in addition to programs at the library and the Family History Center.
Program time is 7 PM in the Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library, 180 W. Spring St., New Albany, Indiana. For more information, please visit http://www.sigsweb.org/meetings or call Donna Foster at (812) 923-3492.
