The BIFHSGO conference, 10 - 12 September 2010, is fast approaching.
On Sunday 29 August, between 8 and 10 am, listen to BIFHSGO President Glenn Wright, Conference Co-Chair Willis Burwell, plus two speakers (Dr. William Roulston and Nuala Farrell-Griffin) will be interviewed by program host Austin Comerton on CHIN radio in Ottawa at 97.9 FM.
Here, from The Gaelic Hour monthly newsletter, www.thegaelichour.ca, is information about the two speakers:
A native of Ireland, Nuala Farrell-Griffin found her passion researching her own ancestors when she immigrated to Canada. Frequent return visits have allowed Nuala to continually expand her knowledge of Ireland and its fascinating genealogical repositories.
Combining her artistic talents with her expertise using computers, she creates a variety of geographic maps and diagrams to augment her lectures and handouts. These colourful, highly-specialized teaching aids give the visual impact many people require to grasp the meaning of the multitude of administrative and ecclesiastical districts related to Irish research. Nuala’s unique presentations are often the catalyst that allows attendees to achieve success in tracing their Irish origins.
