Irish family history at WDYTYA?Live, 16–18 April
Its numbers will be short by at least one person – me! I shan't be attending this year.
There will be just five Irish genealogy exhibitors and five Irish-themed lectures at the show. They are:
Irish Genealogical Research Society – Stand 424
North of Ireland Family History Society – Table 75
GRONI – Stand 108
Eneclann – Stand 218
Irish Ancestors 4U – Table 138
Thursday 16th: 1:15–2pm: Place of Birth 'Ireland': How do I find out more? with Maggie Loughran
Friday 17th: 12:15–1pm: Irish Soldiers & Rebels, with Brian Donovan
Friday 17th: 4:15–5pm: Irish Valuation Office Records, with Maeve Mullin
Saturday 18th: 1:15–2pm: Irish Catholic Church Records, with Jim Ryan
Saturday 18th: 2:15–3pm: The Registry of Deeds in Dublin? with Fiona Fitzsimons
There will, of course, be plenty of interest from other exhibitors and a good few discounts and special promotions on offer. FamilyTreeDNA and AncestryDNA will also be busy destinations, I'm sure. Ask The (Irish) Experts will be offering free 20-minute genealogy consultations, photographic detectives will be detecting clues in visitors' old family snaps, and there will no doubt be a few celebrities holding forth here and there.
