Genealogy at the ICC Library
Our Library is a place of good conversation and connections for family roots and heritage. Structuring your search is invaluable for both those stumped and those beginning to find their Irish Roots. Occasional Weekend Seminars and guest speakers pave the path to the wealth of information now available to the novice and researchers alike.
We have a research reference library of books and compact disks that are a wealth of information and also available to use in your research.

Genealogy is Returning to the ICC Library
The Irish Cultural Centre Library (icclibrary.info) and the Friends of Irish Research (friendsofirishresearch.org) are pleased to announce that they have forged a partnership that will bring genealogy research back to the ICC Library. Every third Friday of the month starting on September 18th, the Friends will be at the ICC Library from 7:00 – 9:00pm with researchers present to help chip away at genealogical brick walls. Bring your research and your questions and veteran researchers will work with you. The ICC now has WIFI throughout the building so feel free to bring your laptop with you. You can also plan to enjoy a snack, a meal or a pint at the ICC Pub. From September to November the Library will be hosting a display from the Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University.
For other than the third Friday of the month, the ICC Library recommends you contact The Friends of Irish Research by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be of great assistance to you.
