Irish wills and testamentary records + BAM

Wills and Testamentary Records are a rich source of genealogical information that can help to build our family trees and also give us a glimpse of the character of the people named in the records.

Although many Irish records including wills were destroyed in Dublin in 1922, there are still remaining records to be found.

The wills are to be found in a variety of places in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland – some are online and some are only accessible in the archives.

In this webinar we will examine where to find Irish wills, transcripts and abstracts that will help to build your family tree, particularly for the that vital period before civil registration of births, marriages and deaths.

After the talk there will be a short Windsor, Slough and Maidenhead branch annual meeting (BAM) which attendees are most welcome to stay for.

This talk is free to members of Berkshire Family History Society and we request a donation of £5 from non-members. Pre-booking is required, because the meeting link will emailed in advance. Booking ends one day before event. 

To join in this branch meeting, you will need a computer device which has a microphone and speakers. Ideally, also a webcam. You also need to be able to access emails from this device. First time users will be asked to download a small piece of software to join the meeting.  The meeting link will be emailed to you in advance. Technical help is available for those who need further assistance, please contact bo*****@be******.uk .
