Using an array of resources (vital records, newspapers, land records, census and military records) he will show how the genealogical narrative of the family was established from the 1820s to the mid-20th century. Along the way he will take the family's and property's story from its humblest of agricultural beginnings, to a dramatic episode of the Irish Civil War, and beyond.

Originally from Northern Ireland, Chris is now based in Scotland. He holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Genealogical Studies from the University of Strathclyde and is an author of many family history books, including Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet (2nd ed), Sharing Your Family History Online, and his latest, Tracing Your Irish Ancestors Through Land Records.
 
Chris is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, tutors courses through Pharos Teaching and Tutoring Ltd, and is a regular contributor to several UK genealogy magazines, and his own Scottish GENES blog.

Registration will open approximately 90 days before the program.
IGSI members will receive a Discount code via email. You can reach the IGSI Education Team at Education@IrishGenealogical.org
