The Irish Special Interest Group (I-SIG) meets four times a year, but, at least for part of 2021, these meetings will be webinars. As soon as it is safe, we will resume meeting in the Auditorium at St. Louis County Library Headquarters located at 1640 South Lindbergh.

      Remaining Meeting for 2022


      Tuesday, 25 October 2022

      “Placing an Irish Ancestor into StLGS’s First Families,”
      featuring Kay Weber

      Bernard/Barney/Brian King was an Irish immigrant who came to Missouri as a child with his parents during the infamous potato famine. Careful research led to placing him in St. Louis before the Civil War and recognizing him in the First Families program. You can honor your early ancestors by enrolling them in a lineage society with knowledge of the process.
