Irish genealogy group to meet this Saturday

The Irish Family History Forum will meet this Saturday, April 18, at the Bethpage Public Library.

This month’s program, from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., will be “Using Old Fulton NY Postcards Database” by professional genealogy Laura Congleton.

If you have used the Old Fulton NY Postcards database at, you know that its title is somewhat misleading. It includes nearly 27 million pages from old American and Canadian newspapers, as well as other documents. Laura will talk about the newspapers, how to search the database, and more.

There will be a Help Session at 10 a.m. with Mike Carragher and an “Ask an Expert” one-on-one help during the coffee break.
