The Irish Land Records course at the 2013 British Institute was one of the very best courses I have ever attended. The material was more advanced than Irish courses offered elsewhere, and I find myself constantly referring to the syllabus. Having the class at the Family History Library, where we could immediately apply what we learned in the classroom, was especially helpful. I made many new discoveries about my Irish ancestors that week. — Catherine Desmarais, CG, 2013 attendee

Personally, Ol' Myrt here plans to register for the week-long English Ancestors course, since I haven't yet identified Scottish or Irish ancestors.

Happy family tree climbing!
