Ulster Historical Foundation North American Lecture Tour


Ulster Historical Foundation North American Lecture Tour, 3-20 March 2018

Join Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt from the Foundation during their annual North American lecture tour this March (03-20) 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.

They will be speaking in Augusta GA, Pittsburgh PA, Boston MA, Louisville KY, Chicago IL, Madison WI, Ottawa ON, Philadelphia PA, Nashville TN, St Louis MO, Omaha NE, Fair Oaks CA, Seattle WA and Honolulu, HI.

It will be the Foundation’s very first time speaking in the state of Hawaii, in fact the first time the Foundation has spoken outside of the ‘lower 48’ US states. We are also looking forward to visiting Augusta, Louisville, Madison, St Louis, Omaha, Sacramento for the first time as well as offering new programs in Pittsburgh, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Nashville and Seattle.

Dwight Radford & All Things Irish Research

I have been privileged to have known and to have worked with Dwight Radford for about 20 years. I know him to be a thoroughly competent professional researcher in all areas of Irish research. He recently put up his website… if you have Irish research needs, you could do no better than to contact Dwight.      Donna

Dwight Radford is a full time professional genealogist residing in the Salt Lake City area. His interests lie in Ireland and Ireland immigration research problems. He has a blog site and a facebook page: www.thejourneyhomegenealogy. Another interest of his is researching the intermixing of the Irish immigrants with the local populations of all races where ever they settled.

Dwight is the co-author of A Genealogist’s Guide to Discovering Your Irish Ancestors (Betterway Books: Cincinnati, Ohio, 2001, 2012) and was co-editor of the journal The Irish at Home and Abroad (1993-1999).  He has published many Irish-related articles in North American genealogical journals.

He will be speaking on “Researching Your Irish Ancestors” on August 11th at the Ohio History Connection in Columbus:

Dwight recently completed a video, on his website, describing Irish research and its quirks. This was accomplished with the help of participants of the Salt Lake Christmas Tour and participants of the Kelowna &  District Genealogy Society in British Columbia.

Dwight has been to Ireland and Northern Ireland many times to work in the archives and to document the ancestral home sites for clients.
