The British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa (BIFHSGO) is hosting a webinar featuring IP-SIG Director Carolyn Heald.  Registration is free for all through the BIFHSGO website.

The Irish Palatines have a unique heritage, one that continues to live on in descendants both in Ireland and in Canada.  This illustrated presentation will give an overview of their story, look at aspects of their identity from 1709 up to the present time, and identify key sources for finding Irish Palatine ancestors.

Carolyn Heald has been researching Irish Palatine history and genealogy for more than three decades. The second, revised edition of her book, The Irish Palatines in Ontario:  Religion, Ethnicity, and Rural Migration, was published in 2009 by Global Heritage Press.  She also co-edits the Irish Palatine Association Journal which is published in Ireland and is a Director of the OGS’s Irish Palatine Special Interest Group.
