5-day Irish Genealogy Essentials courses: 2018 dates

Ulster Historical Foundation is based at
the Corn Exhange Building in central Belfast
The Ulster Historical Foundation will run its intensive Irish Genealogy Essentials course on the following dates this year:
  • 5 February to 9 February
  • 30 April to 4 May
  • 13 to 19 June
The course is delivered by the Ulster Historical Foundation’s experienced staff and includes a week of intensive learning with practical demonstrations using relevant websites and other electronic resources, and one and a half days of guided research in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI).

It is ideal for those who are relatively new to Irish family history and wish to get to grips with research techniques, archives and genealogical sources in Ireland, but will also benefit those with more experience in genealogy who will learn about lesser-known sources, many of them not online and available only in archives.

Participants have full access to the UHF's research and newspaper library and electronic resources, and the expertise of its staff, and receive an orientation tour at PRONI.

The classroom-based elements of the course are held in the Corn Exchange Building, 31 Gordon Street, Belfast, BT1 2LG. For full details see UHF's website.
