Irish immigrants came in search of a better life and religious freedom. They attended Irish Catholic churches like St. Patrick's in Northside, worked long hours and built a new life for themselves and their families. Learn more about the living conditions the Irish endured on both sides of the Atlantic from Dave Schroeder, MSLS. Mr. Schroeder is a nationally known speaker on Irish research, the Director of the Kenton County Kentucky Library and President of the Friends of Kentucky Public Archives Association.

Immediately following, Lee Ann McNabb will share several Irish genealogy websites. Lee Ann is a Reference Librarian at the PLCH with a special interest in Irish research. The program is co-sponsored by PLCH and the Hamilton County Genealogical Society. Anyone interested in Irish genealogy and history is invited to attend this free event.

Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day with a little Irish research!
