NextGen Regional Groups are expanding!

The NextGen Regional groups are a new initiative by the NextGen Genealogy Network.

These groups are organized by geographical area to make it easier for meetups and networking.  We are launching our second regional group – this time for the North East region of the U.S.  We hope to launch similar groups for other regions soon.

We want you to share your discoveries, learn new things and connect with like minded people in your area!

We hope that by having smaller regional Facebook groups, we can help create networks of young genealogists in every state and bring the NextGen mission to life!

OGS Webinar: Navigating Online Sources for Irish Research

 

On the first Thursday of every month, the Ontario Genealogical Society hosts an  education webinar.  This month, Donna Moughty will be presenting a webinar entitled ‘Navigating Online Sources for Irish Research’.   The presentation will begin at 7pm EST on September 6 and registration is required.

Donna says “The loss of records at the Public Records Office in the 1922 fire was devastating but many of the surviving records are now available online. The number of major records that have become available online in the past few years is amazing. Images of civil registration records now online as well as images of Roman Catholic records have revolutionized the way we research in Ireland. In addition, new records are becoming available almost weekly from multiple sources. When researching our Irish ancestors, Since there are no complete record sets in Ireland prior to civil registration in 1864, it’s important to search any source that becomes available that covers the time and place where our ancestors lived”.
