Seats for PRONI's Explore the Archives – Practical Workshops have been going like hot cakes since they were introduced as New Year events back in January. Due to the continued level of demand, PRONI has now added a SECOND set of repeat dates. Message has to be that if you want to attend, book immediately.
The Workshops are aimed at beginner family historians who have already collected some information about their ancestors. Participants will get a hands-on introduction to searching archives on the Internet, as well as to searching, ordering and using original documents held at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland.
Each practical workshop consists of two distinct segments. The first is Introduction to Archives Online at 2pm. This is followed an hour later with an Introduction to Using the Documents (searching for, ordering and viewing original documents).
The new dates are Wednesday 13 May and Wednesday 17 June.
The workshops are held at PRONI's offices in Titanic Boulevard, Belfast. They're free, but you need to reserve your place by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 028 90534800.
