North of Ireland Family History Society Open Day
As well as getting a chance to chat to some of the friendly, knowledgeable volunteers about the direction of your research (whether or not you've actually started it), you'll also be able to visit the Randall Gill Library, which is packed with helpful resources. Among them are many collections of church register transcriptions – the result of much hard work by Society's members, and usually available only to members. There will also be a book sale, so you may be able to grab a bargain.
The NIFHS Research Centre and Library is just six miles from Belfast and easy to find. It's more or less adjacent to the Valley Leisure Centre, and there's no problem with parking. The address is: Unit C4, Valley Business Centre, 67 Church Rd, Newtownabbey, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, BT36 7LS. You'll find directions, and a link to the Library's catalogue, here.
