Finding the Irish in Scotland

Back To Our Past ( kicks off today in Belfast!

A reminder that I will be giving a talk tomorrow (Saturday 17th) at the event entitled Finding the Irish in Scotland:

From the vital records and censuses, to records of hardship and success, the impact of the Irish in Scotland has been well and truly documented. In his first talk in Northern Ireland, genealogist Chris Paton, originally from Carrickfergus but resident in Scotland for over twenty years, discusses how to look for Irish settlers across the water through a variety of resources available both online and offline. 

The talk is at Titanic Belfast at 12.30 - I'll hopefully see a few of you there!
