People of Irish origin all over the world will be given a helping hand in tracing their family roots tomorrow – Friday 23 January.
The website Findmypast.com, which provides information for people who are looking into their family history, is to hold a webinar which is intended to help people use their information more effectively.
The Webinar will be run by Irish genealogy expert Brian Donovan and is part of the site’s Findmypast Friday. On 23 January, Findmypast are dedicating the day to people of Irish descent with the Irish Family History Day.
The Webinar will take place at 5pm Irish Time – which is 12 noon New York time.
On Friday, the site will be releasing new Irish records that are not currently available.
The webinar will help people understand how to make use of the new records and hopefully fill in some gaps in their family history.[php] include ‘findmypast.html’; [/php]
