Summer arrives for NLI's Genealogy Service

The Genealogy Advisory Service is free to all
visitors to the National Library of Ireland
The free Genealogy Advisory Service at the National Library of Ireland goes into summertime mode when it reopens after the bank holiday weekend on Tuesday 2 June.

For the third consecutive year, a team of genealogists from Eneclann and Ancestor Network will be enhancing the regular service during its busiest months. It is provided free of charge to all visitors to the Library in Kildare Street, Dublin 2 and operates to these hours until the end of September:

Monday to Friday: 9:30am to 4:45pm
Saturday: 9:30am to 12:45pm

Announcing the start of the summer 2014 season, Eneclann's Fiona Fitzsimons said: "We’re very happy to have been chosen to provide the genealogy advisory service again this year. We look forward to working alongside Francis O’Carroll and Christina McDonnell, our professional colleagues from the Library.

"In both previous years, we saw a significant rise in the numbers that availed of the genealogy service. We hope to welcome a record number of visitors to the Library this summer, too.”

Eneclann and Ancestor Network will also be providing the month-long series of lunchtime lectures on genealogy and history themes. See blogpost 20 x 20 Irish genealogy lunchtime lectures for further details.
