Lecture Title: "Evidence in Marriage" 

Since 2001, tens of millions of historic records have been digitized and published online for genealogy and local history.

There are so many records available, even experienced researchers can feel overwhelmed.

In this talk we will consider some of the most common difficulties in research, and how to use research methods to overcome them.

We conclude, a good research methodology will always deliver a better research outcome.

 Lecture title: Evidence in death for Irish Family History.

In our lifetime, most of us leave a very light ‘paper trail.’ Ironically, we probably leave the greatest amount of evidence in death.

In 19th and 20th Century Ireland, death was one of the busiest times of life, with its own ceremonies and rituals, involving the deceased person’s family and community.

All these activities created a record or artefacts that may survive today. The amount of records made in death indicates it was one of the busiest times in life.
