On Saturday 4 November, members of the Western Family History Association (WFHA) will provide free family history and genealogy advice for members of the public starting out or struggling with their research.
Location: Galway City Museum
At midday, WFHA committee members Paul Greaney and Pat Finn will give an illustrated talk outlining the various sources available to those embarking on family history research, and will provide advice on how to progress genealogical research through census, civil, church and land records, as well as how to record and present your findings. The talk is suitable for beginners and intermediate researchers.
Then, at 2pm, members of the public are invited to bring their genealogical research and queries to experienced WFHA members, who will offer free advice on sources and strategies for Irish family history research. A huge growth in the availability of online material has revolutionised this area in recent years, meaning it has never been easier to start tracing your ancestors. It is suitable for all levels of experience of family history.
