Do you have Irish ancestors? If so you probably know just how difficult and confusing researching those ancestors can be. Researching your Irish family roots is a challenge all its own due to the limited records and difficulty in locating those records. And that's why the Godfrey would like to invite you to our Irish Genealogy Research Luncheon.
The Godfrey is holding the luncheon at the Playwright Restaurant in Hamden on September 17 from 11-2. Places are $25. Speakers will describe basic steps of genealogy and specific records and databases essential for Irish research.
Genetic Genealogist Jennifer Zink will explain how DNA is one of the most powerful tools available to help determine your place or origin. She will discuss available tests, testing companies, and how personal genomics can help advance your family history when your paper trail runs out, as it is wont to do when researching Irish family history.
We hope that this luncheon will be the start of a series of similar events, each one providing different information regarding research you ancestors from all over the world while enjoying delicious ethnic foods from wonderful restaurants around Connecticut!
Again, the luncheon is at the Playwright Restaurant in Hamden on September 17, 11-2. Places are $25 per person. Call the library to make your reservation today! You can contact the library at 860-346-4375. Seats are limited, so don't wait!
