IGRS day of lectures

In a small departure from usual coverage, I wanted to mention a free day of genealogy lectures on Saturday at the library on Pearse St.  The Irish Genealogical Research Society is one of the oldest family history societies in Ireland and this Saturday, they host an open day with 4 lectures and a chance to ask questions to some of the most experienced genealogists in the country.  This area is a major interest of mine so I'll be attending too.

The lectures are:

10:30–11:10 Digitising The Chief Secretary's Office registered papers
11:15–11:55 Ireland's prison and petty sessions records
13:45–14:25 A myriad of sources for early Irish marriages
14:30–15:10 Sources for adoption and fostering in Ireland

You don't need any previous interest or to be a member of the IGRS to attend these talks.
