Back to my Past show in Dublin

This weekend, the RDS in Dublin is hosting Ireland's first-ever family history show. It forms part of a larger show aimed at the Over 50s, but has its own dedicated entrance and all the stands are clustered together.

As well as the big names that you'd expect ie National Archives, National Library, Eneclann, PRONI and Roots Ireland, there are also a number of smaller organisations and groups advising on membership, genealogy products, photography restoration, and other resources that may be useful to your family history research.

Perhaps the most exciting element of the show is the excellent programme of talks by well-respected genealogy/archive experts.

I'll post a full show report with pictures in due course for those that can't attend, but I'd recommend that any researcher who can get to the show on Saturday or Sunday does so. I think you'll find it a worthwhile experience.

Show Times: 10am-6pm.
