Booking required?


Assistance with finding Irish immigrant arrivals is one of our more frequent requests at State Library. However, there are often challenges with these searches including, varied and inconsistent spelling of names, a common name; lack of information about ages, place of origin and parents’ names, and confused and/or uninformative shipping lists.

In this webinar, you will hear about a case study of how one such arrival was found, and her place of origin and parents’ names located.

In addition, you will gain:

  • an awareness of some resources and strategies to help locate immigrant arrivals; and
  • the knowledge of where to seek help when you require it.

Places are limited so bookings are essential.
