Back to our Past is going virtual!

The 2020 Back to Our Past event will be a six-day- long series of recorded presentations, podcasts and articles - all available via  from the 14th of September.

The programme will comprise presentations and podcasts, an opportunity to ask the experts and a virtual exhibition hall where you can talk to some of our exhibitors by text or audio from the comfort of your home.

Incidentally we have produced some interesting podcasts for Senior Times which have topped the popularity charts. See them on

Over the coming weeks we will be putting together the programme of talks on genealogy (both genetic and general) aimed at all those in Ireland, and abroad, interested in tracing their Irish ancestry or Irish history in general.

Organising Back to our Past for the past 11 years has given us unparalleled access to speakers and relevant authoritative content for this genealogy project plus we also have access to all registered attendees to our shows for the past five years and who obviously have an interest in the subject. Watch the video below to see what Back to Our Past is all about.
