Genealogy Roadshow at Derry rescheduled to 20 April

One of the many casualties of the recent spate of appalling weather in Northern Ireland was RTE's Genealogy Roadshow in Derry. With the closure of the Glenshane Pass on the main road between Derry and Belfast it was decided to reschedule last Saturday's filming for the safety of the public travelling to and from the Lumen Christi venue.

The rescheduled filming will take place on Saturday 20 April at the same venue. Everyone who was already on the guest list will automatically be transferred to the new date.

Heading south, the Genealogy Roadshow will be filming at University College, Cork, on Saturday 13 April.

The Roadshow’s crack historical and genealogical team, which is headed by Turtle Bunbury, John Grenham and Susan Chadwick, will be in the College all afternoon helping people find extraordinary stories in their family, as well as giving free advice on how to track down a family history.

The stories planned for the day are connected to Ned Kelly, Henry Ford, and the Doneraile Conspiracy.

Admission is free and you can attend for the whole event of for just one of the (timed) filming segments. Either way, you should register your intention to attend by contacting Ciara on 048 308 34046 or email.
