Ulster Historical Foundation March Seminar

Want to discover your Irish and Scots-Irish ancestors?

Many people believe that researching Irish ancestors is impossible because of the destruction of the Public Record Office in 1922. While many records were destroyed, others survived and large collections have come online in recent years.

Join Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt from the Ulster Historical Foundation during their annual United States lecture tour to learn how to get the most out of Irish resources and records, gain strategies for breaking down brick walls, and grasp important historical context that may help fill in gaps in your research.

Whether you are just beginning your Irish research or have been at it for years, you won’t want to miss these workshops!

Olympia Genealogical Society DNA Seminar


               Have you taken a DNA test to reveal your genetic origin, but you aren’t sure how to understand that data?  The Olympia Genealogical Society is pleased to have Blaine Bettinger, The Genetic Genealogist, as the speaker for our Spring Seminar.  Dr. Bettinger will be presenting four lectures on how to use results from DNA tests to understand your family history. DNA is a powerful tool in genealogy, but it is a challenge to unlock that toolbox. Dr. Bettinger will go beyond the basics of DNA testing. Instead, he will focus on various tools and methods for analyzing your DNA results.

     This year’s Olympia Genealogical Society Spring Seminar will be held on Saturday, March 30 at the Capitol Event Center, conveniently located at 6005 Tyee Drive SW in Tumwater, which offers plenty of level free parking and easy walking access.

     Registration is now open, at $50 for OGS members and $60 for others. Optional lunch is available for $15 extra. Registration details are on Olympia Genealogical Society’s website, www.OlyGenSoc.org
