Finding Your Irish Immigrant Ancestor: 

A Case Study of New Orleans Genealogical Research

with Marguerite Scully

If you're working on your family tree and exploring your Irish roots, you will be interested in the program "Finding Your Irish Immigrant Ancestor: A Case Study of New Orleans Genealogical Research" presented by Marguerite Scully and sponsored by the Irish Cultural Museum of New Orleans.  Ms. Scully is the Vice President of the St. Tammany Genealogical Society and a member of the Board of the Louisiana Genealogical and Historical Society.

The presentation will take place on Saturday, March 29, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. at the Irish Cultural Museum located at 933 Conti Street in the French Quarter.  Lunch will be served to attendees following the program. 

Using her ongoing research of a New Orleans Irish family as a case study, Ms. Scully will provide program participants with illustrative examples of how to trace a family tree back to the immigrant ancestor, as well as how to acquire information about the life of the immigrant ancestor, through record search and analysis.  The presentation will include a discussion of genealogical obstacles such as the absence or scarcity of critical records, as well as how to handle conflicting information.  Participants will also be introduced to records at libraries, archives, and courthouses that might be of value to their genealogical research.

Ms. Scully has been a genealogical researcher for over 20 years.  She provides professional research services which include document retrieval, assistance to family tree hobbyists, assistance with lineage society application, and legal lineage investigation.  Ms. Scully may be engaged as a speaker for groups; she also designs and delivers genealogical training for individuals and organizations.

The fee for this program, including lunch, is $15 payable by cash or checks to the St. Patrick Foundation on the day of the event. Seating space is limited to 35 adults so advance registration is recommended. Please contact the Irish Cultural Museum at (504) 481-8593 to reserve your seat today.  For more information about the museum visit the website at icmnola.com or like us on Facebook.

There are several parking lots within walking distance of the museum, as well as

metered street parking on Conti.

 

This program is made possible in part through funding provided by the Irish Emigrant Support Programme.
