Eileen Ó Dúill on being a professional genealogist

BIFHSGO members and friends will remember that Eileen Ó Dúill was a major speaker as last year's society conference. During a conversation with Marian Pierre-Louis in her Genealogy Professional Podcast series Eileen mentions being an the conference last year and the event held at the Irish Ambassador's residence. Unfortunately she didn't get the name of the correct society; who can blame her with the mouthful like British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa!

That part of the interview starts around 23 minutes but the whole thing is worth a listen at http://goo.gl/Ojq6xf

Those craving an Irish genealogy event this year might consider attending the Celtic Connections Conference Aug. 15-16, 2014 at LaCava Center, Bentley University, Waltham, MA.  The speakers include John Grenham, Eileen Ó Dúill, Brian Donovan, Sean Ó Dúill, Kyle Betit, Dwight Radford,
Donna Moughty, and Bill Budde. More details at www.celtic-connections.org/
