The Clare Roots Society, brainchild of Ennis man Larry Brennan, was formed in April 2006 as an amateur family history, genealogy and heritage group in County Clare. The Society meets once a month in Ennis, and now has well over 100 members. Anyone with an interest in tracing their family tree is welcome to join. Some members are experienced genealogists while others are novices in the field. In addition to local members, we have some 'virtual' members who live overseas but who follow our genealogy activities via email, and dream that they are in County Clare*. Many of these overseas members participate heavily in Society transcription projects. Activities of the Clare Roots Society are advertised in the local press and in the Ennis Cathedral bulletin. The society works in partnership with Clare County Library in order to add to the wonderful fund of genealogy information already available on its website www.clarelibrary.ie
