What’s included?

Register now for our 2023 Researching Your Irish Ancestors: Assisted Research Programme for just £875 (GBP).

Places are limited and can fill up fast so places will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis

Given the current low value of sterling (GBP) against other currencies now is a particularly good time for overseas visitors to purchase. The present exchange rate values will ensure overseas delegates can make a very tidy saving on the cost.
