The Irish in Western Canada
Updated: Sep 14
I’ve been working on my presentation “The Irish in Western Canada” for the upcoming Alberta Genealogical Society Conference. As is often the case when I prepare for a presentation, I’ve learned a lot in the process, and now I’m quite excited about the topic. I’m not just talking about how our Irish ancestors arrived in Western Canada, I’m also talking about how to research them, including using some unique record sets people might not have considered before.
If you want to attend the conference, or find out more about the other speakers and topics, you can visit the AGS website. If you can’t attend in person, you have the lower-priced option to sign up to watch the recordings. I am getting ready to do my recording in advance of the conference, but still need to do some more practicing, to be sure to condense what’s turned into a big subject into the allotted time.
I hope to see you at the AGS Conference on September 23 in Edmonton!
