Researching Military Records 1750s – 1860s
It was great to meet and talk to the genealogy students from University College Cork and University of Limerick about tracing Irish soldiers from the 18th and 19th century. The Irish in the American Revolution and American Civil War were two focused topics for the discussion. Always exciting to hear the research people are undertaking to trace a relative or someone from their locality. Some students are diligently going through records 200 years old.
The talk took place in the gorgeous Freemasons’ Hall, Dublin Museum Grand Lodge of Ireland, which itself was a real treat.
