Ancestry has a free event coming up next Tuesday afternoon in Dublin. Details on their Facebook page.
Back to Our Past event on in the RDS, 21 to 23 October:
Tickets €5 if you book in advance; anyone been to any of these before? Am wondering if it's of use to anyone who isn't an absolute beginner?
Sometimes the talks are good, the DNA ones look good this year.
I will be there on the IGRS stand - with my other hat on.
What type of hat? Will I recognise you when I see you?
