AncestryIreland.com, the website of the Ulster Historical Foundation, is having a New Year Sale and is offering access to all its birth, marriage and death records at 50% of normal cost.
The site operates on a pay-to-view system with advance purchase of credits. Bulk-buying significantly reduces the cost of each credit, and becoming a member of the UHF's Guild brings even more savings. The big January discount makes the costs even more attractive still!
The database holds around 1.73million bmds, including:
Roman Catholic records: Almost all surviving 19th-century Roman Catholic baptism, marriage and burial registers for parishes in Counties Antrim and Down.
Church of Ireland and Presbyterian records: A large number of Church of Ireland and Presbyterian christening registers for parishes in Counties Antrim and Down, plus the City of Belfast. In addition, a good number of Church of Ireland and Presbyterian marriage register records for mid, south and west County Down, and, for burial records, a sizeable collection of Church of Ireland and Presbyterian records for the City of Belfast.
Civil records: All marriage records for Counties Antrim and Down up to 1900, plus many birth records for Belfast.
The half price sale has started this afternoon and will continue until 31 January.
UPDATE, 30 Jan: This promotion has been extended until 9 February.
