Family History Hounds

Family History Hounds

The Family History Hounds genealogy group will meet Thursday, October 6, 2022 at 1:00pm in the McMillan Meeting Room. Our topic:  Irish Records in U.S. Newspapers

Through his online video, Tom Kemp, experienced genealogist, will share his expertise on gleaning Irish family information from newspapers in the United States. “Did you know that Irish marriage and death records were routinely published in American newspapers? That Irish passenger lists printed in US newspapers contain MORE information than were on the Federal Passenger lists? Learn how to find the ancestral home town of your ancestor when all you know was that he was “born in Ireland”.”
