First Friday Series

The next talk in our First Friday Series takes place via Zoom at 8 pm on 4th June.


All the Bridgets – The Genealogy of an Irish Workhouse by Clare Doyle

Clare Doyle will be discussing the various sources available for genealogical research including workhouse registers of admission, minute books, and other records. What do you do when there are no formal records to examine and what can we learn from other sources?

First Friday Talks can be booked individually for €5 or as part of the series for €50. If you miss a talk for whatever reason, a link to a recording will be provided. The first 8 talks are listed below and final arrangements are being made for November and December, the last presentation will be hosted by a guest speaker.
