In this issue of Clann we have a detailed case
study of how to trace your ancestors from the
Wicklow Family History Centre, an overview of
Ireland's Diaspora policy from Minister Jimmy
Deenihan, T.D., as well as articles on Offaly and
the Great War, the Taylor family of Swords, and
news from some of our 34 member centres
around Ireland.
This year we are delighted to be the headline
sponsor of The Genealogy Event, which is
being held in Adare, Co. Limerick, in August.
Now in its second year, it will feature talks,
workshops and advisory sessions with a focus
on genealogy and DNA.
Some county genealogy centres that have
recently added records to our website are
Antrim, Down, Monaghan and Wexford.
Please check online under Our Records on our
homepage for up to date details of the
sources currently online for each county
centre.
