Tracing your Irish Ancestors: Family History Conference 10-17 June 2020
Our classic 8-day conference programme returns in June 2020!
This programme will include brand new tours to famous historic sites across the island of Ireland and crucially, for the research enthusiast, all your time can be spent researching in the archives of Belfast and Dublin with the Foundation's team of researchers (or a mix of the two).
Assisted personal research, talks, tours and sightseeing are all part of the eclectic, friendly and fun mix of Tracing Your Irish Ancestors. Join us for the journey. We will be delighted to see you.
June 2020 Highlights:
To uncover the history of this place, our extensive programme of tours throughout the week will take you through rolling countryside to sites of international renown from the Giant’s Causeway on County Antrim’s wild Atlantic coast to the famous and historic Walls of Derry and Hillsborough Castle, the official Northern Ireland palace of the Royal Family!
Our 2020 June programme will see delegates:
- Journey into the heart of County Down, enjoying visits to Hillsborough Castle, Killyleagh Castle, Inch Abbey and the St Patrick's Centre.
- Take a trip through Belfast and south County Antrim, enjoying visits to one of Belfast's most interesting visitor attractions at Crumlin Road Gaol and Ireland's oldest and best preserved Norman citadel at Carrickfergus.
- Experience brand new tours to some of Dublins most popular visitor attractions - locations to be announced soon.
- And along with visits to Hillsborough Castle, Carrickfergus Castle and Inch Abbey, our June 2020 programme will see delegates tour the churches, castles and causeways of Ireland.
