Family History is very much a "one-man-band", and opportunities for Continuous Professional Development are hard to come by.
With this in mind, Eneclann and Ancestor Network have partnered, to create a regular series of expert workshops on key topics. The monthly workshops take place in Trinity College Dublin, and the National Library of Ireland. These are *free events*, open to all family historians and independent scholars.
To ensure we can provide an appropriate workshop environment, numbers are limited, and these are ticketed events. To apply email firstname.lastname@example.org To date, the following workshops have taken place:
