A small diversion from Researching Your Family History this week as we are announcing some very exciting genealogical news. The Reading Room of Dublin City Library and Archive has made www.findmypast.ie available for free to Dublin City Libraries’ members.
Planning visits to Art Galleries became something for us to look forward, and over the years we have been lucky enough to have been to see Van Gogh in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, The Louvre in Paris, and The Lowry in Manchester.
Welcome to the third week in this second series of researching your family history during lock-down. Last week in the Bureau of Military Archives we saw how Aidan McLeod and his two brothers had made applications to the Pensions Board.
2021 Dublin Literary Award Longlist of Library Nominations
Dublin City Council announces 2021 Dublin Literary Award Longlist of Library Nominations. Four novels from Ireland are among the 49 books nominated by libraries around the world for the 2021 Dublin Literary Award, which is sponsored by Dublin City Council.
