This year's Back To Our Past show in Dublin gets underway Friday 18 October, and Family Tree is excited to be there!
Now in its 4th year, Back To Our Past (BTOP), is a three-day genealogy, family and social history extravaganza boasting a wide range of family history presentations, archival sources and advice all under one roof.
The official BTOP presentations have been organised by the Association of Professional Genealogists in Ireland (APGI) on behalf of show sponsors Rootsireland.ie (The Irish Family History Foundation), while a supplementary programme of DNA lectures has been organised by the International Society of Genetic Genealogists. Admission to all the talks is free.
Exhibitors include the leading international genealogy websites and the main Irish repositories. Make sure you also pop along to say hello to the team on the Family Tree stand and pick up a goody bag for €3 - includes the latest issue of Family Tree!
The show encompasses related interests, such as military and social history. Entry to BTOP will also give you free admission to The National Coin and Stamp Fair and The Over 50s Show, which are jointly taking place at The Royal Dublin Society (RDS) venue and where Eric Knowles of ‘Antiques Roadshow’ fame will be on hand to offer free valuations and advice.
- Friday 18, Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October, 11am-7pm. Tickets €10 on the door. Industries Hall, RDS, Dublin, Ireland. www.backtoourpast.com and www.facebook.com/backtoourpastshow.
