PRONI's Archives Unlocked - Lunchtime lecture series

PRONI, Titanic Boulevard, Belfast.
The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) has announced a new series of Thursday lunchtime talks. They don't start until August, but as PRONI events are so popular, I thought I'd pass on details now rather than wait for my usual fortnightly listing when they might be fully booked.

Each of the talks will be led by a member of PRONI's staff, will centre on archival collections in PRONI and will provide excellent insight on using these resources for family and local history. They will all be held at PRONI's offices.

Thursday 14 September: Drawn from our land: revealing maps from the collections, with Dr Glynn Kelso
Thursday 21 September: Prison records at PRONI, with Graham Jackson
Thursday 28 September: Sport in the Archives, with Andrew Toland
Thursday 5 October: Capturing the past – photographic collections and digitisation at PRONI, with Joy Carey & Lorraine Bourke

Admission is FREE, however booking is essential as spaces are limited. Tickets.
