Event Description

Join The Hermitage as we host the Ulster Historical Foundation of Belfast, Northern Ireland and explore the Irish and Scots-Irish roots of Middle Tennessee. Whether you are a beginner interested in starting your own family research, or a skilled genealogist, everyone will enjoy this evening workshop with Ulster’s expert researchers as they dive into the many resources available for discovering your roots. The challenges of tracing emigrant Scots-Irish ancestors in the years 1750 to 1850 (approximately the period of President Jackson’s own life) will be explored, and using examples drawn from online resources, archives, and documents, including some references to Jackson’s own family background, the presenters will suggest strategies for trying to identify ancestors in this timeframe. $15/person and Hermitage Members are free.
