10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  Irish and Scottish research

Held in the performance space Manchester Central Library at 10:30 am

The usual problem for those of us with Irish ancestors is the lack of information on the origins of the forebearers, apart from "born in Ireland" on a census return. This talk aims to give help and advice showing how to start your Irish research plus the various records that are available to locate that elusive place of birth.

Research for Scottish ancestors is also an area requiring a rather different approach. The Anglo-Scotish branch will aim to put beginners on the right path and look at the increasing amount of data that is available.

There will also be a short presentation by Hilary Hartigan. This is a talk for people who have already tested their DNA or who are intending to do so and is based, primarily, on the Ancestry DNA test but will also include a brief mention of My Heritage. It will:

  1. explain why your ethnicity doesn’t match your family tree (or perhaps it does)

  2. explain why you and your favourite first cousin don’t seem to be related (and it probably has nothing to do with the milkman)

  3. show you how to sort through the 45,000 DNA matches that you get on Ancestry
