Workshop: Starting Your Family Genealogy
Offered in conjunction with the New England Historic Genealogical Society

Family history is one of the most valuable pursuits you can participate in—learning about who you are, where you come from, and “meeting” the thousands of people who came before you, can be a rewarding and even life-changing experience. But how do you get started? There are plenty of websites, libraries, and printed sources out there, but access to all that information can leave a beginner feeling overwhelmed. In this workshop, Director of Research Services Lindsay Fulton from New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS) will help participants navigate the first steps in tracing their family history and teach basic strategies for researching. Even if you've already been doing research for a few years, you’re sure to learn a new tip or two! Space is limited, and registration is required. The cost for this workshop is $35 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society or the New England Historic Genealogical Society and $50 for nonmembers. Register online through Eventbrite, by telephone at 603-856-0621, or by mailing the registration form.

Workshop: Tracing Irish Roots
Offered in conjunction with the New England Historic Genealogical Society

An estimated 39.6 million Americans claim Irish heritage, yet tracing one’s Irish ancestry is not without its challenges. Common surnames, unsubstantiated family lore, and lost records from the 1922 destruction of the Public Record Office can certainly play havoc with your research. In recent years, however, a number of genealogical materials have come online. This workshop aims to provide participants with the tools and resources to discover their ancestors’ Irish origins, offer strategies for overcoming brick walls, and discuss key resources, records, and repositories to assist genealogists in their Irish research. Space is limited, and registration is required. The cost for this workshop is $35 for members of the New Hampshire Historical Society or the New England Historic Genealogical Society and $50 for nonmembers. Register online through Eventbrite, by telephone at 603-856-0621, or by mailing the registration form.
