Please join us on Saturday, February 28th, at 2 PM at NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House (1 Washington Mews at Fifth Avenue, just south of 8th Street) for a genealogy lecture and q&a session with Joseph Buggy, author of Finding Your Irish Ancestors in New York City (Genealogical Publishing, 2014). Reserved seating is required. To reserve, please call Ireland House at 212-998-3950 (& select option 3) or send an email to ireland.house@nyu.edu.

This program will cover genealogical resources (the well-known and the esoteric) that may be used to trace Irish ancestors in New York City. Joseph Buggy will cover several topics including how researchers may find townlands from where Irish ancestors emigrated, a daunting task for researchers without relatives to query or family histories covering where their ancestors came from. He will also discuss under-utilized genealogical resources in Ireland with which he has worked with while conducting research. Joseph Buggy has served as a research associate at the Irish Ancestry Research Centre at the University of Limerick, Ireland. He is an Irish-born, Limerick-educated genealogist and author who has done extensive genealogical research for clients here in various New York City archives. His experiences working here encouraged him to write his first book, Finding Your Irish Ancestors in New York City. Mr. Buggy is currently a sociologist at the Center for Social Science Research at George Mason University in Virginia.
