Researching Family in the British Isles

HSP presents an in-depth, four-day curriculum featuring international instructors on researching family in the British Isles. Through these expert-taught classes, you’ll learn how to conduct genealogical research in Scotland, Ireland and England, plus how to apply DNA to your studies. Each instructor will offer personal consultations; separate registration required.
The Historical Society of Pennsylvania (HSP) has partnered with the International Society for British Genealogy and Family History (ISBGFH) to conduct a four-day program of researching family in the British Isles. ISBGFH conducts the British Institute held annually in Salt Lake City to provide weeklong education by well-known genealogists on British Isles research topics. The ISBGFH has arranged for several presenters to provide an overview of researching British Isles topics at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. These presentations will explore DNA, Scotland, Ireland and England research. London based genetic genealogist Dr. Maurice Gleeson, MB, will present on DNA and Irish research, Christine Woodcock, from Genealogy Tours of Scotland, will discuss Scottish research, and Frank Southcott, President, ISBGFH, will explore the English records.
For both courses, HSP has reserved a limited number of hotel rooms at the Holiday Inn Express Philadelphia-Midtown for $139 per-night. To reserve a room at this discounted rate, call 215-735-9300 and mention that you are booking for the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.
