The Irish in Cleveland—Their History & Communities
February 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Presenter will be Margaret Lynch, Executive Director of the Irish American Archives Society. The growth of Cleveland matched the growth of the Irish population in this area. Their communities, social and service organizations, churches and influence grew from the 19th century onwards. Learn which records may assist you most in researching your Irish ancestors. Cemetery researcher Bernie McCafferty has created a surname database for St. John Cemetery, which he will explain and provide look-ups as well. Volunteers are available after class to assist in research. A behind-the-scenes library tour, with special emphasis on WRHS resources for researching Achill and Burrishoole Parish records, is available after class. Fee $15.
