Proceeding of the second Irish Genealogical Congress, 1994.
The Irish Genealogical Congress is an international event for those interested in Irish family-beginner or expert, hobbyist or professional. The IGC is held every three years and features lectures on sources and record repositories, social history records of the Irish overseas and instruction for beginners. The success which greeted the publication of a selection of papers given at the 1st Irish Genealogical Congress (1991) under the title, Aspects of Irish Genealogical, has encouraged the IGC committee to make availble this further volume which contains a similarly representative collection of lectures from the 2nd Irish Genealogical Congress (1994). Aspects of Irish Genealogical II contains articles on Irish links and emigration to Canada and Austrslia; undan history; sources in Trinity College, Dublin and the Quit Rent Office; Betham and Lodge; sources for Dublin Dissenters, Jacobite’s and the use of oral tradition; the O Clerys and their manuscripts and the Chiefs of the Name and is an essential purchase for anyone interested in Irish genealogy.
