Back to our Past event plans to go virtual this autumn

Back To Our Past (BTOP), Ireland's only national family history show, is going virtual for this year's autumn outing.

Normally held over two or three days at the RHS complex in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4 in October, the 2020 event will be a purely digital affair, with online presentations, podcasts and Q&As running for seven days from Monday 14 September to Sunday 20 September.

The organisers are putting together a programme of talks on genealogy (traditional and genetic) aimed at all researchers exploring their Irish ancestry. So far, there's no word on whether these talks will be newly and specifically recorded for the event or if they are recordings from presentations delivered at previous outings of BTOP.

Thus far, I've not had any response to my request for details, but when/if I do receive more information, I'll let you know.
