Tracing your Ancestors in the Revolutionary Period

Tracing your Ancestors in the Revolutionary Period

Family History Research Sources

We are delighted to partner with the Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI) for this series of lectures for this year's Adult Learners’ Festival.

22 February - 26 February at 1pm each day

Members of AGI will present a lecture introducing  genealogical sources that might be used to document ancestors who were alive in 1916 or who were active during the Rising. While the sources will be discussed in the context of the Rising, they are not all exclusive to that period or specifically for Dublin City.

This is the  programme of lectures and speakers for the week:
