Genealogy: Crossing the Pond, from Northern Ireland to America

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Mary Jane Kuffner-Hirt is back from a recent trip to Ireland, further enriching her ancestral story of James Leech. She will share James’ 1763 Irish passport and Pennsylvania and Virginia land, tax and militia records and maps that she used to trace the migration of her Scots-Irish ancestors from Northern Ireland through Lancaster and Cumberland Counties and later to Rockbridge County Virginia. She will also discuss the resources and repositories where the records were found.

Our presenter - Dr. Kuffner-Hirt has published in Familia, the journal of the Ulster Genealogical and Historical Society, and presented at the 2017 FGS conference; and in 2016, to an international migration studies conference in Northern Ireland. Now retired from positions with IUP and city and state government, she is applying her research skills to family history.
