Thursday November 18, 1pm to 2pm

We regret to inform you that due to illness, Karen George will be unable to present as part of our Genealogy Gems Lunchtime Sessions, this Thursday November 18.

At short notice we have a new speaker in her place, Paula Ritchie, who will present Irish Family History.

Paula RitchiePaula's overview of Irish Family History will include:

  • Important Irish records
  • Understanding land divisions and using maps
  • Irish naming patterns and name variations
  • Context
  • Using Australian records to find Irish family

Paula has a Certificate in Genealogical Research from the Society of Australian Genealogists and studied at the University of Adelaide - BA (Hons) in Classics. She is an avid family tree builder - her ancestors were predominantly Irish and she now concentrates on Irish research.

We regret any inconvenience this causes you and look forward to rescheduling Karen for the return of Genealogy Gems Lunchtime Sessions next year.
