This friendly and informative event will run from 10am to 4pm and will have a slightly different format this year with three full-length lectures followed by three 'lightning talks', as below:
- Dr Paddy Fitzgerald will discuss the neglected area of Irish internal migration
- Marita Conlon McKenna's topic will be the famous Gifford sisters, whose lives and loves were so intertwined with the Easter Rising of 1916
- Mike Maguire will detail the immense online resources of Limerick City Local Studies
- 'Lightning talks'
- Claire Bradley will set out her top tips for searching the census
- Aileen Wynne will discuss family tree software
- Joanna Fennell will deliver some hints about using immigration records
The event is open to everyone, members and non-members alike, and there's no need to book.
