The National Library of Ireland has recently digitized and made available online, for free, Catholic parish registers from throughout Ireland. This is an incredible boon to Irish family history researchers, many of had previo...

New post: Why you can't research family history in a vacuum. Understanding the history of the time and place your ancestors lived is crucial.

Is anyone familiar with the term (or name) "Maguccio"? I'm guessing on the spelling. My grandfather says it means "Domenic," but he always uses it with a definite article, referring to his grandfather as "The Maguccio," and I'm trying to figure out what it really means or refers to.

This looks like a really cool event coming up for those with NYC ancestors! (Not sure if they might also cover the rest of the Archdiocese of NY, though.)

Probably not the first and surely not the last request for help deciphering the newly available Irish parish records! Am I reading this correctly? I think it says: 1st Michael of Wm Toner & Cath Brown S. Bridgt Byron.

Literally every other entry in this section of the register is in the format of  "NAME of FATHER & MOTHER LASTNAME," with no mother's maiden name given. Could I have gotten lucky enough to have the only maiden name in all of 1833? But since I only see one sponsor, I'm worried I'm misreading what something that's actually part of the other sponsor's name. (Also not sure I have Bridget's name right, so correct me if I'm wrong.)

There were several entries, at different eras in this parish, with "(bastard)" included in the entry. Even though it's not included here, should I be considering that these parents aren't married given that maiden names of married women were not typically recorded? #genealogy #NLI #parishregisters

The reporter didn't let me know when this article was being published, so I'm just seeing it now. I spoke to the Daily News last summer about ordering my great-grandmother's immigration records from USCIS.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ little-known records office in Washington, D.C., includes a historian, librarian and more than a dozen researchers. They run a genealogy program that for a fee, will hunt down family immigration documents — from citizenship paperwork to the alien registration forms immigrants had to fill out at area Post Offices during World War II.

In 19th century Italy, were married women known by their maiden or married names? I was under the impression that they continued to be known by their birth names, but am not finding any of my female ancestors under their birth names when browsing death records on Antenati. Am I looking for the wrong names? Or is it just coincidence that I've come across a number of male ancestors and no female ones?

Just catching up on past episodes of WDYTYA on YouTube and our whole house erupted in excitement when it was revealed that Jesse Tyler Ferguson's great-grandfather ended up in my hometown!
