Tonight: WW1 through the sources at PRONI

Two archivists – Dr Ann McVeigh and Ian Montgomery – from the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland will be at Carrickfergus Museum and Civic Centre this evening, delving into PRONI's unique archive of photographs and documents.

The presentations, which will incorporate film footage as well as photographs, will appeal not only to those interested in family history research, but for all those who have an interest in WW1. Dr Ann McVeigh's talk will look at the active role played by women during the First World War, at home in the munitions factories and abroad, in diverse roles from nurses to lorry drivers.

Refreshments will be served, so the Museum needs to know if you intend to come. Please call 028 9335 8049 or email
