If you have Irish ancestors, you’ll want to check out the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society’s webinar, It’s More Than Just Names: Finding Your Ancestors in Griffith’s Valuation, a free webinar from Wisconsin State Genealogical Society, delivered by Donna Moughty, today at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Fire and government destruction of early census records left a void for Irish researchers. Griffith’s Valuation is one of the only lists of where people lived before, during and after the Famine, however many researchers don’t understand how to use it. This lecture explains its importance to Irish researchers and explains how to use it. Register here.

The society’s upcoming webinars are listed here.
