Irish Research Class in San Diego

There will be a class on "How to Start Your Ancestral Research in Ireland" on Wednesday, June 13, 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM at the San Diego Family History Center (4195 Camino del Rio South in Mission Valley) in the FHC Classroom. Mary Russell, the BIGRA Irish Chair will guide attendees through the basic steps of beginning Irish research. Mary is the recognized "expert" on Irish research in San Diego County.

No sign up is necessary. There is no fee for the class. Handouts will be available for 10 cents per page. The new "Irish Resource List" will be available at cost.

I am really disappointed that I don't have any known Irish ancestry. While it is difficult research, I know I would love to go visit Ireland, find Irish cousins, and generally have a good time there (and at Irish pubs in the US too!). I guess some people just have to carry burdens like this...maybe I could adopt someone's Irish ancestors?

I'm thinking of going to the class if I don't have jury duty.
