Ottawa Branch Meeting: Ryan Taylor Memorial Lecture

Sunday, November 18, 1pm – 4pm

Library and Archives Canada Auditorium - 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa

This years annual Ryan Taylor Memorial Lecture will be given by Kyle J. Betit on the subject of: Irish Sources you may never have considered.

In Ireland, many records were destroyed or were never very well kept, so we need to access as many types of records as possible for successful Irish research. There are numerous record types to try beyond the most commonly known ones. This presentation will discuss such important sources as occupational records; court records; freeholders, freemen and voting records; militia and yeomanry records; prison records, school and educational sources; convert rolls and Catholic Qualification Rolls, the 1841 Morpeth Roll, Registry of Deeds, Land Registry, and more!

Kyle J. Betit BS (Biology) is a professional genealogist, lecturer and author residing in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was a co-editor of the popular journal The Irish At Home and Abroad, and is co-author of A Genealogist’s Guide to Discovering Your Irish Ancestors. He is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), the National Genealogical Society (NGS), the National Writer’s Union, and the Genealogical Speakers Guild.
