Join Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt from the Foundation during their annual North American lecture tour this March (03-20) to learn how to get the most out of Irish resources and records, gain strategies for breaking down brick walls, and grasp important historical context that may help fill in gaps in your research.
They will be speaking in Augusta GA, Pittsburgh PA, Boston MA, Louisville KY, Chicago IL, Madison WI, Ottawa ON, Philadelphia PA, Nashville TN, St Louis MO, Omaha NE, Fair Oaks CA, Seattle WA and Honolulu, HI.
It will be the Foundation’s very first time speaking in the state of Hawaii, in fact the first time the Foundation has spoken outside of the ‘lower 48’ US states. We are also looking forward to visiting Augusta, Louisville, Madison, St Louis, Omaha, Sacramento for the first time as well as offering new programmes in Pittsburgh, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Nashville and Seattle.
Whether you are just beginning your Irish research or have been at it for years, you won’t want to miss these workshops.
