THE Chairman of the Council of Irish Genealogical Organisations, Paddy Waldron, will give a presentation on the Kerry Administrative Divisions and Genealogical Records in the Seanchaí Centre, Listowel on Wednesday, April 10 at 7.30pm.
The presentation, entitled 'An Introduction to County Kerry Administrative Divisions and Genealogical Records' has been organised by North Kerry Reaching Out, who promote culture, heritage and history.
The event provides an ideal opportunity to learn all about townlands, electoral divisions, dispensary districts, poor law unions, civil parishes, ecclesiastical parishes, dioceses, baronies, counties and other administrative divisions. It also allows the opportunity to find out how to find the boundaries of these divisions on maps; and how to work out under which division you will find birth, baptism, marriage, death, census, land and other records for your ancestors.
Members of North Kerry Reaching Out will also be in attendance on the night to assist people in building their family tree.
