AGI lectures for Adult Learners’ Week 2016 at the National Library of Ireland

Members of AGI will present five lunchtime lectures during Adult Learners’ Week 2016 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.
