Over the years, Ireland Reaching Out has shared a lot of information to help our members trace their Irish ancestry. Now make sure you know the basics of Irish genealogy with our first free online course - Introduction to Irish Family History.

Introduction to Irish Family History

Created with the help of our volunteer network, this course introduces the basics of Irish family history research, explains the resources available, and helps researchers interpret their findings in a meaningful way. 

The course is completely free and hosted on the free learning and empowerment platform, which has kindly sponsored its publication. You can track your progress and even certify your knowledge at the end!

Enjoy the course, send us your feedback, and please feel free to share with your family and friends for whom a little more knowledge about tracing their Irish family history could be hugely useful!

Introduction to Irish Family History

Don't forget to share your family history discoveries with us! Add your ancestors' profiles to their Irish place of origin or post your 'brick wall' questions on the IrelandXO Message Board to get help from the rest of the community. 

We hope you have found the information we have shared helpful. While you are here, we have a small favour to ask. Ireland Reaching Out is a non-profit organisation that relies on public funding and donations to ensure a completely free family history advisory service to anyone of Irish heritage who needs help connecting with their Irish place of origin.
