For the month of June IrishCentral, along with their partners findmypast are focusing on genealogy and investigating your family history. This Friday IrishCentral are hosting a Q&A on their Facebook page and below you’ll find out how to get involved.
On Friday, June 6, from 9am until 12 noon (EST), you will have access to six genealogy experts in Dublin who will answer all your burning questions about your heritage.
If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about the origins of your family name or where your great-great-great grandfather twice removed hailed from, now is your chance to find out.
Rules and how to post:
1. We’ll open the session with a post on our page inviting you to ask questions in the comments.
2. Only queries answered between 9:00am - 12pm EST will be replied to.
3. Only one query (with as much information included as you like) can be replied to per person.
4. You must begin your query with the words: #findmypast. Queries without this will not be replied to and you will be asked to post again.
5. To post your query for the experts, you must choose to comment under the dedicated FindMyPast post.
6. Any queries made on posts or indirect messages will NOT be replied to by the experts and you will be asked to post again in the correct place.
7. If your query has been posted within the allotted time and has not been replied to, this will be noted and the experts will return over the following week to provide you with a reply.
