FindMyPast is free until Monday. https://www.findmypast.ie/family-story/

Lost Cousins is reporting a change happening on FMP this month so that we will no longer be able to access previously viewed records. I can still access mine so I'll be using this weekend to check that I've saved any that I need. https://www.lostcousins.com/newsletters2/sep18news.htm#MyRecords

Back to our Past show, RDS.

Was at this show this morning.

20% off new Ancestry subscriptions.
25% off renewing Ancestry subscriptions.
Ancestry DNA kits are €59.

ps - not a great show to be honest...

I might be in Dublin for something else this weekend and was thinking of dropping in while I'm there.
Is it worth an hours visit?

I certainly don't think so, if you were at either last years or 2016 you've seen it. FMP aren't there.

Well, it's free in, so it's worth an hour of your time.

I'll be there all weekend with the IGRS. Attended 2 vg DNA lectures today - these will all be on Youtube at some point though.

I was there for a couple of hours today. It is worth visiting. As Pinky said the lectures were good. Lots of stands with professional genealogists / bodies and although FMP was missing Ancestry was there in strength with lots of terminals & staff. So were the NAI & PRONI, Glasnevin, etc. Heavy emphasis on DNA. Free entry….. Certainly worth a couple of hours.

I believe so - from their website. I've an exhibitor badge so didn't pay attention to the punter entry.

I registered with name, email and phone details, and got an email immediately in return (as below) with no mention of needing to print anything for entry. Presumably if you give any of the above at the door, they can check the registration records and let you in.

Thanks for booking the event:

I presume I could "Gift" this to myself? Or does the receiver account have to be different to the issuing account?
