Mississauga, Ontario

Please join us at Heritage Mississauga for our 2018 Genealogy Workshop Series with Ruth Blair

"Scottish Research from a Far"

The pay per view website ScotlandsPeople is usually the first stop for anyone researching their Scottish family history online. This lecture will take you through the process of using ScotlandsPeople and show how using other resources to help narrow down your search will enable you to use ScotlandsPeople in a more cost effective manner. Other online resources that can assist you with your Scottish research will also be examined. If you can't go to Scotland to research your family then this lecture will help you find out what is available online for Scottish research.

"Taking Your Irish Ancestors Back over the Pond"

Researching your Irish Canadian ancestors can be a frustrating exercise when the census and vital statistics records only provide Ireland as a place of birth. When you begin your research in Ireland you need to know at least a County of origin but a parish, town or townland would be the best information you could find to start your search. This lecture will help you begin researching your Irish family history in Canada and show you how to use the information contained in the documents to help you go back over the pond to Ireland. We will examine different methods you can use in Canadian records to find a place of origin in Ireland.

Cost: $25.00 - includes both sessions
