Ancestral Connections, Names, Places and Spaces 30 June - 6 July Cork

Ancestral Connections: Names, Places and Spaces Irish Genealogy Summer School, University College Cork, June 30-July 6, 2013 This genealogy summer school offers a complete course in the latest Irish genealogy research, as one would expect from a summer school held in UCC, one of the world’s leading universities. All aspects of the subject are covered by a series of presentations and ‘hands on’ workshops given by a selection of Ireland’s leading genealogical lecturers and experts. The latest online and offline sources are described and explained in presentations which will be of great interest to the seeker of Irish roots and family history, whether beginner or expert. We have had some changes to the programme which can be viewed at with Fiona Fitzsimons delivering an extra talk on 'Sources for Fosterage & Adoption records in Ireland prior to 1952' and a change to Friday's schedule with Pedigree charts, family tree and genealogy software explored by Dr Paul MacCotter, Lorna Moloney and Dave Enright. Thankfully, it is not all work. A number of trips are offered featuring sites and locations including Fota House, the Queenstown Experience in Cobh, and Spectacular Killarney with its beautiful mountains and lakes. Not forgetting, optional evening tours to sites of interest in Cork itself, ‘the Venice of Ireland’, Blarney Castle and the beautiful harbour town of Kinsale. The Summer School Ancestral Connections will be completed by a one-day conference offered by the Cork Archaelogical & Historical Society; founded in 1891, the society is one of the oldest local interest societies in Ireland. This will take place on the 6th July.
