Celtic Connections Conference 2020
Registration for the CELTIC CONNECTIONS CONFERENCE 2020 is now open!
This is the announcement you’ve been waiting for!
The conference, co-sponsored by IGSI and TIARA, will be held at the Westin Chicago North Shore Hotel (601 N. Milwaukee Ave., Wheeling, Illinois) on July 31-August 1, 2020.
FREE on-line learning opportunity!
It’s a New Year and perhaps time for you to get a fresh start on your Irish genealogy or learn a few tips for filling in those missing leaves on your tree.
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!!
Need some help with your family tree?
