Irish Research 201

This course is designed for researchers who want to dig deeper to find their Irish roots. You’ll learn about resources and techniques unique to research in Ireland, and find out what tools are available to build an effective research plan using Irish genealogical records. These four lessons, designed to allow you to collaborate with other students, will help you flesh out much more about your ancestors’ lives prior to leaving the Emerald Isle. Praise For This Course: I’ve taken several courses through Family Tree University, but Irish Research 201 has definitely been my best investment. The interactive format makes you feel like you are sitting in a classroom with a teacher and other students. You share your research with the entire class. Not only do you get feedback from the teacher, but the other students give suggestions on new websites to try or an alternative research strategy. The interactive nature provides a wealth of experience to draw from. Using a website recommended during a collaborative lesson, not only did I break down my 12 year old town name brick wall, I also found baptismal certificates for my great-great grandmothers and her brothers! This class has been the best genealogical investment I’ve made in 12 years! Thank you Sharon for an amazing class! –Helen Julson I’ve been researching my family’s history for over 20 years, including my Irish roots. Along the way, I’ve read several books on how to conduct Irish genealogical research. However, nothing compared with the course materials and interactive nature of the Irish Research 201 course at Family Tree University. Over the course of 30 days I made more discoveries regarding my ancestors’ lives in Ireland than I had in the previous 20 years. Although not everyone will make such discoveries, all who take the Irish Research 201 course will walk away with a richer understanding of Irish culture and the history of Ireland, as well as the many records available to researchers. I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about your Irish ancestors. –Blaine Bettinger Sharon DeBartolo Carmack’s Irish Research 201 class was great! It was very helpful and interesting with lots of great sources and information. She was very responsive and interactive with the class and provided the individual help we might need – lots of great ideas and guidance. The interaction with the classmates was also very helpful. –Tamara Noe
