Reminder: Lunchtime 1916 lectures at the National Library

Members of AGI will present five lunchtime lectures during Adult Learners’ Week 2016. 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.
The lectures will start at 1.05pm. The programme of lectures that will be presented are as follows:
