Researchers of Irish family history have often complained about the absence of nineteenth century census data. Southcott will look at the importance of basic family research in the U.S. and explore the various alternative resources to develop the Irish family in Ireland. He'll also discuss ideas for how to approach research in Ireland, and use several actual family examples.
Southcott has been researching family for over 25 years, and is currently president of the Greater Philadelphia Area Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists, and secretary of the International Society for British Genealogy and Family History.
