Irish Genealogy News - It's March

Hi Folks! Hope you have a great March and a Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Here are my upcoming presentations:

March 7, 2012, Researching Your Irish Ancestors, Ontario County Genealogical Society, 7pm
March 8, 2012, How to Get Ready for 1940, RGS Computer Interest Group, 7pm
March 10, 2012, Googling for Genealogy, Central New York Genealogical Society, 1pm
March 14, 2012, Course II - Searching Irish Records for Your Irish Ancestors, Ogden Farmer's Library, 6:30pm
March 16, 2012, How to Begin Researching Your Irish Ancestry, Irish Studies Conference, St. John Fisher College, 11:15am

Also FYI, there is an Introduction to the Irish Language course being offered by Erin McMahon through the Rochester chapter of the Irish American Cultural Institute which begins March 10th. (The more we know about the history and culture of our ancestors, the “luckier” we’ll be as genealogists.)

If you’re like me and have missed some or all of the genealogy-related tv series, you can watch them online (without commercials!!!) at the following links:

Who Do You Think You Are? http://www.nbc.com/who-do-you-think-you-are/video/
Faces of America, http://video.pbs.org/program/1397337072/
History Detectives, http://video.pbs.org/program/1138014438/
PBS Ancestors, http://www.byub.org/ancestors/

Images of the 1940 US Census will be available April 2nd for no charge at http://www.archives.com. Indexing will begin at that time and your help is needed. See http://the1940census.com for details – even a few minutes a day can make a difference.

Take Care,
Dennis

    Thank goodness for great internet genealogy sites like this out there. I'm just starting on my own genealogy, and I would be completely lost without help from more seasoned genealogy workers. How far back have people been able to go with one line? I'm hoping to get pretty far with my mother's Irish line.
