So we are now at the end of another year and there is so much to look forward to in 2016!  Of course, I am talking about the 1916 celebrations here in Ireland!  There will be so many events taking place throughout Ireland, although most likely in Dublin over the Easter weekend!

2016 will be a perfect opportunity for you to look up those ancestors who may have been involved in the 1916 Rising, and indeed the War of Independence and Civil War.  Already, RTE have already started to advertise programmes on the Rising so there will be plenty of documentaries to watch during 2016.

It will be a very busy year for genealogists too, and now is the time for you to ask those questions over the Christmas holidays when all the family are gathered for the festivities!!

There are so many sources out there to search for information on our ancestors who took part in this fight for freedom in 1916, so it is a perfect opportunity to reinstate that ancestor back in his/her rightful place in your family tree on the 100th anniversary of this event in our history!

If you need any help in doing so, please don’t hesitate to contact us at www.intothepast@gmail.com or www.intothepast.co we would be delighted to help you on this journey!

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and Peaceful New Year!
