The first talk, “Strategies for Finding Your Irish Ancestors”, will take place at the usual time, just after our 11:00 am business meeting.  There will be a break for lunch from approximately 12:45 – 1:30. At 1:30 pm Donna will begin the second talk, “Online Sources for Irish Research”.  Don’t forget to bring your lunch.  Alternatively, the Bookmark Café will be taking lunch orders ahead of the 11:00 am meeting, which you can pick up at the lunch break.  Water will be provided. Moughty, Jenkins B.
