PRONI: Two family history workshops next week

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) is to hold two practical workshops next week, as part of the Explore Your Archive campaign. The latter is delivered by The National Archives and the Archives & Records Association across Ireland and the UK and aims to showcase the unique potential of archives to excite people, bring communities together, and tell amazing stories.

PRONI's workshops will focus on starting out in family history research and will give beginner delegates hands-on experience of searching online archives, as well as searching, ordering and using original documents held at the Belfast repository.

The workshops will be held on Monday 16 November and Friday 20 November and will follow an identical format, as follows:

2:00pm Using Online sources
2:45pm Searching for and Ordering original documents
3:30pm Tour of the building, including a presentation of Records.

Venue: PRONI, Titanic Boulevard, Belfast
