Thanks to Glasgow and West of Scotland FHS

A huge thanks to Glasgow and West of Scotland Family History Society (https://www.gwsfhs.org.uk) for its hospitality last night. After the society held its AGM I gave a talk on the latest Irish family history developments online and offline.

I had so much to talk about that we sadly ran out of time at the end to have Q and As, but managed to help a few folk before throwing out time at Kelvinside Academy!

For more on the good work being done by the Glasgow based society, read the Scottish Genealogy Network post at http://scottishgenealogynetwork.blogspot.com/2015/03/sgn-visit-to-glasgow.html, following a visit in 2015 to its resource centre in Partick.

It was also great to bump into fellow Norn Iron genie chum Maeve Rogan at the talk, who handles the online social media platforms for the North of Ireland FHS. Ireland really is only a hop, skip and a jump* away from Scotland (*ferries are also available!). The society's website is at https://www.nifhs.org.

Thanks again!
