This local Family History Society was formed in April 1993.  Monthly lectures are arranged for the 3rd Thursday of each month and these are detailed at: http://www.ballinteer.dublindiocese.ie/parish_bulletinboard.htm#Hist

The monthly meetings are held at 8pm. (February to June & September to November, inclusive). All who have an interest in researching their own family history are most welcome to attend our meetings.
