Resident Genealogist, Lynn Brady MGSI is on site from 10am - 5pm, Monday - Friday. She has helped people from all corners of the globe to delve deeper into their Irish heritage. When people discover that they have relatives in the cemetery, they sometimes choose to leave a tribute or memorial on the grave which can be acquired at our Monuments Works headquarters here in Glasnevin Cemetery.
Of course, you don't have to be visiting from faraway places to discover more about your family history. We run various workshops and seminars throughout the year where the goal is simple - to give you the guidance, tools and support you need to unearth your ancestry. Don't just take our word for it - here is what one attendee had to say about our inaugural Glasnevin Genealogy Seminar which took place last April.
"Thank you for a fantastic interesting day, to the excellent presenters and most helpful volunteers. I am inspired to go home and start researching. I would definitely recommend this day".
