The London & Middlesex branch is pleased to invite you to join us on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at 10 am for our monthly hybrid event, with speaker, Nuala Farrell-Griffin, who will be joining us in person.

A bit about our Speaker:

Nuala Farrell-Griffin, M.A. (History of the Family) has spent many years as a Consultant and Speaker on Irish family history research. A native of Ireland, she specializes in breaking down complex land transactions and Wills to connect multiple generations of interrelated families. She concludes that “in Ireland, it’s all about the land”. A tireless investigator and writer, she motivates her fellow researchers to delve deeply into the archives while retaining a sense of delight in the quest. She is author of The Elusive Mrs. Walcott: An 18th century Entrepreneur and the Rookwood Estate (Ireland, 2023).


The availability of genealogical records and archives for members of the Irish diaspora has exploded in recent years. But, access to information is only the start of the journey. Filtering out the relevant items can be time-consuming and frustrating. Long-time researcher and historian, Nuala Farrell-Griffin will demonstrate ways to get the most of your online time and avoid getting ‘digitally fragmented’. Topics discussed: free and subscription databases, social media, and wiki communities.
