Breaking Down Your Irish and Scottish Brick Wall - free webinar now online for a week


If you have lost your Irish ancestors, you need to watch the recording of today's webinar by Judy Wight. In Breaking Down Your Irish and Scottish Brick Wall in the New Poor Law Records of Scotland, Judy taught about a wonderful collection of records, known as the New Poor Law Records, which may have extensive information about your Irish or Scottish ancestors.
And if you attended the live session today...it reminded me of last week's webinar with Thomas MacEntee, when he mentioned "the whole Internet blowing up." :) Well, about 36 minutes into the session, that seemed to indeed happen. All of a sudden - the entire webinar closed - not only for our live audience, but for me as the organizer also. After pulling out a good portion of my hair, within about five minutes we had everything back and running again. And afterwards, it took me a little extra time, but the recording of the entire webinar is flawless. I think I know what happened - just a few minutes before the webinar crashed, the new pope was announced. Makes me think that the Internet was so busy, that it caused our GoToWebinar connection to crash. Nonetheless, Judy did a remarkable job of continuing her presentation! And you, the live audience, were very patient and understanding!
