PRONI marks G8 summit with online exhibition

To mark the imminent arrival of the G8 big-wigs in Northern Ireland (Lough Erne, Co. Fermanagh, for anyone who doesn't keep up to date with world news), PRONI has launched an online exhibition.

It goes by the rather snappy title of G8: Hall of Documents & Top 10 treasures of PRONI relating to Co. Fermanagh and displays a range of documents and photographs relating to the countries and governments involved. There's also a list of the Top 10 archives of PRONI relating to Co. Fermanagh.

And it's this list that may be of greater interest to family historians, especially to those with ancestral connections to the area. It's a very handy list of estate and family papers held at PRONI and a reminder that the papers for Enniskillen Workhouse cover the years 1840-1952.
