Tutorial - Finding your Family's Footprint in Ireland with IHGS Graduate Margaret Gaffney

Thursday 21st October 2021

Location: Online


Discovering exactly where your Irish ancestors hailed from can be challenging, especially with the lack of 19th century census returns. However, there is an abundance of other records that can help in your research, and this talk focuses on Griffith's Valuation and the subsequent Revision (or Cancelled) books – what they are, what they can tell us, and where you can access them. Case studies are used to highlight a range of sources that can help you identify your family in these records, and discover the place where your ancestors left their footprints in Ireland.
Maggie holds the IHGS Higher Certificate in Genealogy, and an Advanced Diploma in Local History from the University of Oxford and is currently studying for her IHGS Diploma in Genealogy.
