Map it Out with Donna Moughty
 
When you’re trying to figure out which individual of the same name is your ancestor, locations are important and maps can help.  Our ancestors didn’t move around a lot, but they may have moved just a short distance into another townland, or, if they were on the border of a parish or even county, they might have slipped over the border.  That’s why maps are important.

Seeking Your Ancestors Before and After the Famine with Donna Moughty
 
As with other ethnic groups, the Irish emigrated for many reasons.  Although frequently thought of as famine emigrants, economic, political, and religious concerns provided the impetus for leaving their homeland.  This lecture will look at the push-pull factors for emigration beginning in the late 1600s through the early 1900s.  Since success for immigrant research is highly dependent on discovering the exact location in the homeland of one’s ancestors this lecture will focus on the types of records found in the United States which may provide clues to this very important question.
 
Until the COVID-19 situation is resolved, all programs will be held virtually through the Go To Webinar platform.  All programs are free and open to the public.  Advance Registration is required.  Patrons may register for the classes using one of the following options:

Life Aboard the Mayflower 1620 by Lori Coffey.
 
Imagine being stuck on a cruise ship during a pandemic. That was very much like the Pilgrims on the Mayflower. We all know their story of thanksgiving after that first grueling winter of failures and death. 
 
But how much do we know about this tiny ship with the huge reputation on a voyage that would change history? The Mayflower was much more than a ship. It was lifeline and home for 102 intrepid survivors, where babies were born and heroes created as tempest and destruction crashed over them.
