"Finding Your Irish Ancestors"

A free, educational program hosted by the Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical

Society, will  be presented on Tuesday, March 12th in the Sunflower Room of the

Laramie County Library in Cheyenne.

The program will be presented by Elaine Jones Hayes, assistant manager

of reference services and special collections librarian at the Laramie

County Library, who has studied and done family history research

for many years. She will discuss the history of Ireland, including the

Irish Potato Famine, and how that affected Irish immigration

to the United States. She will specifically talk about the Irish censuses,

Tithe Applotment books and Griffith’s Valuation—critical land and name

resources for Irish genealogy—and she will offer suggestions on searching
other Irish and U.S. resources to find out more about Scots-Irish ancestors.

Registration is not necessary for this program, which is open to the public.

The meeting of the society begins at 6:15 p.m. with a short

business meeting, and the program starts at 7:00 p.m.

For more information, call 630-0924.
