For the month of August TheNational Library of Ireland hosted the Twentyx20 lunchtime series of talks on Irish family history. Organised by Eneclann andAncestor Network, the wide range of expertise on show every day was a show-case of Irish genealogy at it’s best. Each expert held the floor for 20 minutes and spoke about an aspect of their own work and its relevance for Irish family history. Each talk was followed by a Q&A session, which gave the audience direct access to the speaker.
