Back To Our Past confirmed for October

Great news!

Ireland's very own national family history show – Back to Our Past – will return for a third outing for three days in October — Friday 12th to Sunday 14th.

As previously, it'll be held at the RDS in Ballsbridge, Dublin.

The organisers say that all 50 of last year's exhibitors expressed an interest in returning, so they are no doubt now chasing them up and trying to get them confirmed. Details of exhibitors and floor plans will follow nearer the date. For the time being, just get the dates in your diary! I'll bring more news as it becomes available.

You might also be interested to know that the organisers, S&L Promotions Ltd, are the publishers of Senior Times. (The connection is clear when you arrive at Back to our Past and realise it is part of the much bigger Over 50's Show.)

This month's issue of Senior Times carries a Family History Supplement, edited by the highly-respected genealogist Paul Gorry. It features some rather splendid articles (including one by yours truly)!

Pick up a copy while it's still on the shelves.
