Fréamh Éireann, the Gaelic words for “Irish Roots”, is the name of our genealogy group. Our interest lies in assisting members of the Fairfield Gaelic-American Club interested in researching their family roots. Membership in Fréamh Éireann is open to all members of the Gaelic-American Club. We focus on, but are not limited to, Irish family research.
Functioning as a self-help group, the members vary in knowledge but all are able to learn from each other by sharing their research experiences, providing suggestions and guidance, identifying resources, programs, and organizational sources that assist in one’s personal research.
We do not conduct research for non-GAC members.
Through our monthly meetings we keep members of Fréamh Éireann advised of various genealogical seminars and events as well as members’ successful searches and/or questions. Minutes and email notices inform members who may not be able to attend.
Periodically guest speakers are invited to address either our regular meetings or general meetings open to the public. Occasionally field trips are arranged to points of genealogical interest.
