As we approach St. Patrick’s Day, our minds naturally turn to all things Irish. Many of us dredge up the family rumors of an Irish ancestor or two. In fact, nearly one in nine Americans has some Irish ancestry. That’s a good excuse to celebrate!
Because March is also National Women’s History Month, I’m going to present a special program that will honor some of our famous and not-so-famous Irish foremothers. Their exploits and accomplishments will astound you!
Please note: this program does NOT deal with genealogical research. This is a cultural history program.
Marriage records have always been a staple of family tree research. However, there is much more to be explored beyond simple marriage dates.
Our ancestors left a wide range of records as they fell in (and out) of love.
“Love and Marriage” is a genealogy class offering a fresh look at traditional marriage records AND the clues found in non-traditional records of match-ups and breakups.
