     Here is another great reason to visit Ireland soon--free professional consultations will be available at the National Library of Ireland (NLI) and the National Archives, beginning Monday, June 11th.  The NLI has had a consultation service for years in their genealogy room, but the availability of a professional genealogist was spotty at best (although I have received great advice from library staff members, so don't ever discount their help and expertise--they might not be genealogists, but they are knowledgeable).
     Eneclann, one of the professional genealogical services that will be providing the free consultations, has sent this announcement:
"The joint consortium of Eneclann and Ancestor Network are delighted to announce that they will provide genealogy services in the National Archives of Ireland and the National Library of Ireland in the coming year, following a competitive tendering process.  The Consortium has increased the number of genealogy experts delivering the service, to provide a wide and comprehensive range of expertise to anyone looking for help and advice in tracing their family history."
The free consults will be available during the following hours:
National Archives of Ireland: Monday to Friday, 10am to 1.30pm
National Library of Ireland: Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 1pm, 2-5pm, Saturday 9.15am to 12.45pm
