Guest Speaker Eileen Scully

Join us for a conversation with Eileen Scully as she shares the story of her recent reunion with her family of origin. Adopted in the US as an infant, for most of her life Eileen knew very little about her lineage, and what she did know was vague and questionable at best. 

If you have wondered how to discover people and places in Ireland who connect you with your ancestry, this talk is for you. Eileen will walk us through the steps she took over the last 15 years to discover her heritage and the tremendous effect that has had on so many facets of her life.  

Refreshments and the opportunity to continue networking downstairs at the close of the IBO meeting.
