The topic for this meeting is:

                                            Pension Records for our Irish Forebears

This presentation covers Irish old age pensions introduced in the early 1900s.  People new to these records are often surprised to find they also refer back to and include information from the 1841/1851 census records (before they were destroyed).  Where to find pension records for the many Irishmen who served in the British military will also be discussed as well as Irish military service pensions for those who served during the Easter Rising or the War of Independence.
