Genealogist Dave Miller will help you with the starting points and how to start your Irish research from home before you even step foot on the plane to Ireland. Later, Aunt Martha told you stories about your ancestors. You begin to prove the story is correct...or maybe it's totally wrong. Nothing against Aunt Martha but maybe the story was never explained to her correctly either. Then you find out the ancestor who no one knew anything about was actually accused of attempted murder and put on trial only to find out she was later acquitted, and it was all about a family dispute. These are the stories you need to prove or disprove and some of these stories can be unbelievable. Dave Miller will also show some of his family stories (some are real whoppers) and how he went about proving them and how you can find ways of proving your family stories.
