The Irish Ancestral Research Association

TIARA (The Irish Ancestral Research Association) is a non-profit organization established to develop and promote the growth, study and exchange of ideas among people and organizations interested in Irish genealogical and historical research and education. Our monthly meetings educate and entertain our members, as well as foster interaction with other Irish researchers. We do NOT provide individual genealogical research services.

  Next meeting at Brandeis: Friday September 8, 2017 at 7:30pm (doors open at 7:00pm)... Professional Genealogist Michael Brophy will present 'Orphan Trains: History, Genealogy, Legacy' ...
