Tracing your Irish Ancestors, October conference
A busy week of genealogy lectures, visits, history  & fun
Having so quickly sold out its September Tracing Your Irish Ancestors conference, the Ulster Historical Foundation has announced that it will be repeating the event in October. The dates will be 4–10 October 2015.

The conference is an opportunity for researchers to learn about the dramatic history of Ulster and the lives of our Irish ancestors. Expert genealogists are on hand to guide delegates, whether experienced genealogists or beginners, at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland and the major archives in Dublin, including the National Archives of Ireland, the Registry of Deeds and the RCB Library.

It's a busy week! An extensive programme of tours takes researchers to sites of international renown including the Giant's Causeway, Dunluce Castle on County Antrim’s wild Atlantic coast, the archaeological wonder of Newgrange in the tranquil Boyne Valley, the haunting Kilmainham Gaol and Trinity College Dublin with its Old Library and the Book of Kells Exhibition, all must-see trips for any visitor to Ireland.

Assisted personal research, talks, tours and sightseeing are all part of the eclectic, friendly and fun mix of Tracing Your Irish Ancestors. Find out more at AncestryIreland.
