A wonderful event has been organised by the Ulster Historical Foundation to celebrate the life and work of Dr Brian Trainor, who had made an immense contribution to numerous archives and libraries, and to local historical, genealogy and community groups over the last nearly seven decades.

It's to be held on Friday 12 May at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, where Dr Trainor worked as assistant archivist from 1956 to 1970 and then as Director to 1986. The day promises to be informative and entertaining, with a distinguished line-up of speakers, each representing an organisation with which Dr Trainor has been involved, giving presentations on subjects related to their research areas.

For more about Dr Trainor's life and career, and for the list of speakers and their topics, see the programme (click image).

The event will start at 10am. It's free to attend and includes light refreshments and lunch.
