Challenges in Irish Family Research: Brick Wall Panel

  • 17 Jun 2023
  • 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • GoTo Webinar

Presented by IGSI Genealogist Panel: Lois Mackin, Tom Rice, Mary Wickersham, sponsored by the Irish Genealogical Society International.

The annual session is an IGSI member favorite. Brick wall queries have been submitted by members in advance and will be used by the panelists to offer specific research suggestions. This is one of those precious opportunities to "look over the shoulders" of an experienced research team as they tackle ancestral mysteries.
