PRONI's Archives Unlocked lunchtime lecture series

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland
Starting in September, the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) is to hold a short series of Thursday lunchtime public talks.

These talks will be led by PRONI staff and will centre on archival collections at the Belfast repository and provide insight to using PRONI's sources for family and local history.

Each of the talks will take place at 1pm and will be held at PRONI, Titanic Boulevard, Belfast.

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, with Joy Carey and Lorraine Bourke.

Each of the lectures is free to attend and everyone is welcome. However, booking is essential as spaces are limited and these lecture series are often oversubscribed. Register at Eventbrite.
