Other Info
 
In the Irish Basic and Intermediate level, you have learned an amazing amount of detail on genealogical strategies and Irish record collections. In the Advanced level, we begin to examine some of the record collections that are less reliable in providing pure genealogical detail and the genealogical detail in them is often difficult to locate specifically. One record collection for Ireland that are in many ways unique to this country and the entire United Kingdom are those of estate records, plantation documents and settlement papers. They can be very difficult to use, however hold original sources of information for periods that pre-date many of the later more customary genealogical source records.

This course will provide you with an understanding of the importance of estate, plantation and settlement papers when undertaking your genealogical research.
