Libraries are places of inspiration, escape and shelter for many. Now, with coronavirus having affected the arts and culture sector deeply, it's more important than ever to support those libraries we do have, which, as well as helping to create book lovers, also often provide things like wifi and computer access and help with accessing local services, and act as a community hub.

Welcome back. Last week we took a break from researching your family history to announce the availability of www.findmypast.ie to Dublin City library card holders.

Welcome to week seven in the second series of researching your family history during lockdown. Last week we looked at James Callan’s will and saw that he had left all his possessions to his mother, Katherine Callan who lived at Marlborough Street, Dublin.
