On Friday afternoon, the University of Limerick's archivist Evelyn McAuley will highlight the value of the Papers of the Earls of Dunraven, held at the Glucksman Library’s Special Collections, as a source for Limerick genealogy. Evelyn will outline the numerous key archival documents which can be used to illuminate the history of tenants and workers on the Adare Manor Estate, as well as the genealogy of the Wyndham Quin family, better known as the Earls of Dunraven.
