A reminder that the "Family History From The Sea" exhibition will open tonight, October 17th in the Boyne Room, Governor’s House, Millmount at 6.30 p.m.
The exhibition will be launched by David Snook of Irish Mariners.com and will feature photos and sea records from his collection of Mariner's Cards from the early 20th Century.
A unique feature of these CR10 cards is that they usually contain a good quality photograph of the seaman. They also contain personal and voyage start details.
The exhibition will feature mariners from the Drogheda, Clogherhead, Termonfeckin, Baltray and Mornington areas.
So, if any of your ancestors was a seaman this would be one not to miss.

This exhibition will run up to the end of November in the Governor's House Monday to Saturday 10am - 5pm
