Irish Interest Group


Next Meeting 

There will be no meeting in August due to the Auckland Family History Expo,  we look forward to seeing you there (more information below). 

A weekend of researching genealogy and family history has been planned for 11-12 August 2018,  to be held at the Fickling Convention Centre,  546 Mt Albert Road,  Three Kings.   Entry is free.  Four overseas speakers will be available conducting workshops on family history related topics.   Booking on the days will ensure your seat.   

Visit Auckland Family Expo  for more details.

Our next meeting is to be held on Sunday 25th November from 10.00am to 4.00pm.   We will be holding a Research Open Day with the Irish library holdings of websites, books, CDs, maps and fiche available to research.    Assistance will be provided so personal family material would be an advantage to bring along.  
It is intended to conduct tutorials on various Irish websites,  with a programme available closer to the open day.   

A door fee of $10 will be payable.  Please bring your lunch - Afternoon tea complimentary.   

We look forward to seeing you at our Irish Open Day on Sunday 25th November.
