Debra Dudek, librarian at the Fountaindale Public Library, has made me aware that there is a wonderful Irish Genealogy Workshop and Webinar that is coming up and was put together by the Fountaindale Public Library of Bolingbrook and the Ulster Historical Foundation.
The program will take place over two days on March 15, 2017 and March 16, 2017. The March 15, 2017 all-day program, between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm, is titled “Irish Genealogy: Resources for Success!”. The March 16, 2017 program takes place between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm and is titled “Irish Famine and Emigration Records”.
The programs will take place at the Fountaindale Public Library District located at 300 W. Briarcliff Rd. in Bolingbrook, IL
The event is free and is open to the public.
It does appear you can register for either program or both. You are not required to participate in both programs.
