Genealogical sources for 1916: five lectures at NLI (Feb)

Members of Accredited Genealogists Ireland (AGI) will present five lunchtime lectures during Adult Learners’ Week at the National Library of Ireland.

The lectures will introduce genealogical sources that might be used to document ancestors who were alive in 1916 or who were active during the Rising. While the sources will be discussed in the context of the Rising, they are not all exclusive to that period or specifically for Dublin City.

Tuesday 23 February: Reporting on the Rising: Using Irish Newspapers in the National Library of Ireland, with Helen Kelly MAGI

Wednesday 24 February: Census Returns, Electoral Rolls and Covenants: Where were your ancestors in 1916? with Rob Davison MAGI

Thursday 25 February: The records of Dublin’s Congregations at the time of the Rising, with Rosaleen Underwood MAGI

Friday 26 February: Researching the Rising: a case study from the National Archives of Ireland, with John Grenham MAGI
