Brian Donovan

Irish Soldiers & Rebels: tracing WW1 and Irish revolutionary ancestors

Friday 13.15-14.00 Theatre 2

The years 1912-23 saw the deaths of over 75,000 from Ireland in armed conflict, from the fields of France to the streets of Dublin. Irish men and women took arms to fight for Irish freedom, to defend the Empire and to liberate Belgium. They joined the UVF, the ICA, the Volunteers, the IRB, the IRA and other radical organisation. Possibly half a million Irish born joined the British, American, Canadian and Australian armies. This lecture will untangle the complexities of the surviving records and what you are likely to find.

Brian Donovan

Using Findmypast to unlock your Irish Family History

Saturday 14.15-14.35 Education Zone

There are over 110 million unique Irish genealogical records at,findmypast.com,by far the largest collection anywhere online. This lecture aims to explain what records are on the site, as well as how to use them. Irish records are notoriously complex, but digitization has changed this forever. There has been a digital revolution in Ireland, as whole new record series are developed for use, like court records, land records, prison records and of course church and civil records. What do the records tell you, how can you piece together the evidence you need to build your family history? Brian will talk through the many collections available on line, focusing on those records which are most valuable for Irish research.

Fiona Fitzsimons

Thursday 14.15-15.00 Theater 3
