This family history conference will be held in Belfast. It doesn't mean that it is only for Northern Irish genealogy. If you ancestors are from Ulster, which includes several counties in the Republic of Ireland, it can be for you too. Records you have from the 1920's and 30s might call it the Irish Free State. Cavan, Monaghan and Donegal are located in Ulster and if your ancestors call any of these counties home, you can benefit from a visit to PRONI in Belfast.
This conference is amazing. Not only can you get personalized help to find information about your family at PRONI and the archives in Dublin, you also have the option of taking a tour every day or any day that you choose. It is a great way to combine genealogy with a historic tour to some of the most amazing sites in Ireland including a day trip to Dublin and all the resources that it has to offer.
Check out the website to see exactly what is offered. I am so sorry that I didn't see this before planning my trip to Cavan in September.
