About this Event

PRONI and the Ulster Historical Foundation (UHF) would like to invite you to this joint event. Kevin Cassidy will talk about using American records to uncover Irish ancestors at PRONI on 10 January 2010 at 1pm.

Siblings or cousins that emigrated to the United States may have created a fuller set of records to examine than one’s direct ancestor. Unanswered Irish research problems might be solved in the vast collection of collateral records found across the Atlantic. Kevin Cassidy has 25 years of experience researching American records from the near complete 19th-century census records, to newspaper obituaries to homestead applications. This is a ‘must’ for those researching ancestors who have left Ireland for the United States.
