We are delighted to partner with the Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI) for  lunchtime talks and workshops for this year's Adult Learners’ Festival.

What to expect on Tuesday and on Friday:
Professional genealogists and members of AGI will give two genealogy lectures followed by small group workshops to help you get started or to progress your family history research.   The first session will be an introduction to Irish genealogy, looking at methodology and the best sources to start your research, such as civil registration and the census. 

Taking the next steps in family history research: understanding land and property records

Speaker: Helen Kelly M.A.G.I.
Friday 10 March at 1pm

Workshops 2.05 – 4pm

This talk will be a progression from Tuesday’s introduction and look at more advanced sources now available online. The talk will be followed by workshops where participants will have the opportunity to discuss their research with professional genealogists and members of AGI.  Both sessions will introduce the wealth of genealogical sources now available online and how to use the various Irish genealogy websites to your best advantage.

Those who sign up to stay for the workshops will have the opportunity to start or progress their family history research, working closely with a professional genealogist.  Working in small groups the genealogist will assess your family information and get you started on your research.  They will share their tips for navigating online resources as well as directions to vital resources that are not available online. Sharing your research with a group is a great way to expand your understanding of Irish genealogy. There will also be opportunities to visit the genealogy room in the National Library to learn about the free resources available for visitors.
Please bring along your family information if you plan to join the workshops.  Places in the workshops are limited and will be granted on a first come first served basis on the day.

All welcome! Booking not required.
