      An Irish Family in the Great Famine

      About 80% of today’s English people have Irish ancestry. In this talk, Stephen Lally looks at Irish lives in the rural west of Ireland during the famine years between about 1800 and 1850.

      Stephen looks at:
      - How people lived;
      - Their houses, possessions, food, work, education and entertainment.

      Stephen also touches on politics, social attitudes and the reasons for mass poverty and emigration.

      There are no special entry requirements and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists. This talk is for anyone who is interested in Irish social history or are tracing their family ancestors. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert tutor and lots of detail.

      Cost: Payment required - £8.00; discounted for Members of Society of Genealogists £6.40
