Don't forget about Start Your Family Tree week!

From Stephen’s Day we want to help you find out more about your ancestors with the launch of the second year of ‘Start Your Family Tree Week’. From the 26th December through to New Year’s Day we'll giving you all the help and advice you need to help you make a start on your Irish family history research. Christmas is the perfect time to do this as it may be the one opportunity in the year we get to interview our older relatives and gain a much better understanding of our family history.

Each day we'll be providing a handy tip, including free downloads and interview guides to help you along the way. We'll also be offering a 10% discount on all subscriptions making it easier for you to access our almost 10 million Irish family history records.

In addition to help and advice, we'll be running a  'festive family history challenge,' which will take place during Start Your Family Tree Week. Each day via Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, we'll post a question for people to answer. At the end of the week people can send all their answers via email to be in with a chance of winning a 12-month subscription to findmypast.ie, a €200 voucher for Amazon and family history research to the value of €360 from Eneclann! There will also be spot prizes for those who get involved via Facebook, Google+ and twitter. If you're not in you can't win!
