From our “Sister” Group, Marin County Genealogical Society:

“Irish Genealogy”
Presented by Margaret Cooley
Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Researching your Irish ancestors is becoming easier with the publication of the Catholic Parish Registers and the rapid increase in DNA testing.

Speaker, Margaret Cooley, has researched her Irish genealogy and published The McQueeneys: From Ireland to America. Margaret will focus on the effects of the Famine in Ireland and why the Irish people left their native land for opportunities all over the world, including personalized stories of the immigrants.

The Irish diaspora during the famine years -1840-1870 – is at the heart of understanding how and why our Irish ancestors came to be in America.

Margaret is an educator and author, she will be presenting “Family Stories Workshop: Creating Narratives from Family Records” as part of The Irish- American Crossroads program series on March 26th, 2017.

The share and tell segment of the meeting will focus on sharing tips and techniques for tracking down Irish ancestors.Irish Flag
