  • Mayo North Heritage Centre Family History Open Afternoon Tuesday July 23 2-5pm.
    Family History Open Afternoon as part of Crossmolina's community festival, July 2013. Come and see the work we do at the centre and how to trace your own roots!

    The Mayo North Heritage Centre will host an event in conjunction with the Crossmolina Community Festival, which is to take place at the end of July 2013. The festival acts as a focal point for people from the Crossmolina area to come home and visit the area. The centre will hold an open afternoon during the festival where people can call, learn about genealogical research and the work of the centre. They can have some research done on their own family by members of staff. It is hoped the event will be of particular interest to people from the local area who have moved away over the decades.
