When I was at RootsTech at Salt Lake City in Feb/Mar 2024, I had the pleasure of meeting Aimee Cross, a professional genealogist from the United States. Aimee’s company is called Ancestry Consulting by Aimee and you can view her website here.

Aimee also has a very successful YouTube channel called Aimee Cross – Genealogy Hints where she has uploaded lots of informative videos. You can view her YouTube channel here.

Aimee had seen one of the talks that I had delivered for Legacy Family Tree Webinars and got in touch to arrange a meet-up and interview while we both at RootsTech. That interview resulted in two videos uploaded to Aimee’s YouTube channel and the first is shown below.

In this talk, Natalie gives tips on how to get started with your Irish ancestry research. Doing as much research as possible in the country that an ancestor emigrated to is so important and that can provide you with vital clues as to where your ancestor might have originated. She also includes useful tips that can help to identify other family members such as the Irish naming tradition.
