For those researching Irish ancestors there is a fascinating seven day course available at the University College, Cork from 28th June – 5th July. The organisers have made the course as flexible as possible with the opportunity to stay for five or seven days residential or for specific days and the costs are very reasonable.
The course, in addition to running field trips so that everyone gets a flavour of the food, culture and history of this fascinating place, also includes lectures and seminars on Irish Genealogy, Irish Civil Registration of Births, marriages and deaths, Fosterage and adoption and an interesting insight into Matchmakers and Marriage Customs. If you have an interest in Irish ancestry this course should be high on the wish list to attend. Further info from http://www.ucc.ie/en/ace-genealogy.
