Tracing your roots presentation

On Tuesday 23rd of August 2016, County Sligo Heritage & Genealogy Society hosted “A Beginner’s guide to tracing your Family tree” as part of the nationwide celebrations for Heritage Week 2016.

The presentation mainly focused on providing  advice for those starting out researching their family history and using online research sources. With the support and assistance of the Sligo County Council Ireland 1916 -2016  Centenary Programme, the event also featured a special segment offering advice on tracing your 1916 ancestors, which was very well received.

The afternoon proved to be very successful.  We had a great response from individual and family groups who came to our event. We had visitors from Sligo and neighboring counties  as well as visitors from USA and Britain.

Thank you to our neighbours the Hawks Well Theatre for facilitating this wonderful event and thank you to all who attended. We hope you enjoyed the presentation and we wish you continued success in researching your ancestors.
