The Tewksbury Genealogy Group is open to everyone who's interested in genealogy. Each meeting -- which will take place via Zoom -- consists of a presentation from a guest speaker (typically a professional genealogist), followed by a period where members can briefly share their latest genealogy research, and then the library will share a genealogy resource its patrons can access for free.
The April 2022 meeting will feature Irish Genealogist Michael Brophy's presentation, "Shamrocks In Cyberspace: Irish Genealogy Databases." Information about our Irish ancestors is exploding on the internet. The best websites for Irish research will be explored and analyzed. Recent, landmark additions of Catholic Church records and vital records will be presented. Finding aids for further Irish research will be assessed and critiqued in this exciting lecture on all that has happened with Irish resources in cyberspace.
