The Irish Research Group provides advice and assistance for QFHS members who are researching their Irish families.
The availability of and access to Irish records has improved dramatically in recent years, so now is an ideal time to begin or revisit your Irish family history research.
Our meetings include talks and presentations on Irish resources, research techniques, and Ireland’s history and culture.
Members also have an opportunity to ask questions, to share knowledge and skills, to discuss research progress and successes, and to help each other explore and solve research challenges.
The group meets on the second Saturday in February, April, June, August, October and December between 10.30 am and 12.30pm online:
Irish Research Days are at:
QFHS Family History Research Centre
46 Delaware Street
Please contact the convenor, Dale Fogarty with your membership number if you are interested in joining.
