The following excerpt is from an article published in the April 18, 2011 edition of offalyexpress.ie:
DO you think you might be related to someone famous or infamous? Could you be connected to a big event in local history? Or do you need to solve a family secret?
The roadshow’s crack historical and genealogical team will help people find extraordinary stories in their family as well as giving free advice on how to track down a family history.
This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with experts in the field and fill in the blanks revealing the true story of your ancestors.
The Genealogy Roadshow is looking for people from Offaly who are interested in finding the missing pieces in their family tree, to be featured in the programme.
If you think you fit the bill, or would just like to attend the roadshow, Big Mountain Productions want to hear from you.
You can submit family information by filling in the online form at http://www.bigmountainproductions.com
