Here's a great opportunity for anyone with Monaghan Ancestry to extend their research week. Monaghan Genealogy Training posted the following message on Facebook.
We offer 4-day training courses for tourists tracing Monaghan ancestors. They will take place in Monaghan on 14-17, and 21-24 October. Participants will get information on genealogical sources, cultural history of County Monaghan and the diversity of origin of its people. This project is organised by Clogher Historical Society/Cumann Seanchais Chlochair, Monaghan County Library and the County Monaghan Heritage Gathering Committee. It is supported by LEADER, the County Monaghan Fund, and Monaghan Genealogy. The project will be delivered by Ancestor Network Ltd, a professional genealogy company. Substantial funding for the project has resulted in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for oveseas visitors to come to Monaghan to trace their roots, experience the warmth of a Monaghan welcome and explore its rich culture and history.
