Legacy Family Tree Webinars will present “Why Are Irish Records So Weird?” on Wednesday, March 15 at 2 p.m. Not all Irish records were destroyed in 1922, but the burning of the Public Record Office in that year did leave an immense gap. As a result, Irish genealogical research has to deal with idiosyncratic, fragmentary and sometimes marginally relevant records. This webinar unravels the ways in which marginal records have become essential for Irish research, and the peculiarities in using them online.
