So, brew your cup of tea, warm up a scone from the local bakery and check out this free Ancestry webinar with Kyle Betit by clicking on this link:  Tracing Your Irish Ancestors Back to the Homeland
 
The ‘ad’ for this free webinar states: Who wouldn't want to know more about their Irish roots? Discover key record collections on Ancestry.com and back in Ireland, plus learn to tell your Murphy and O'Brien ancestors from the ones down the block.
 
It is approximately one hour long and no special software is required.  Enjoy!!
