PRONI's 'Ordinary People, Extraordinary Times' programme seeks a third group of participants

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) had such an exceptional response to its online programme/experiment called 'Ordinary People, Extraordinary Times' that it has opened up a third group of participants.

It was fully booked within hours of its launch in mid-April and two groups of participants have gone on to complete it. 

It is run by PRONI's Making the Future team, and aims to help you discover more about your history and the people in your life. It is designed to encourage conversations and help you to document how we have experienced the extraordinary times we are living through, and offers six fun activities including letter writing, family history, scrapbooking, cooking and music.

A newly-formed third group will start the programme on Monday morning, 8 June, when the first of three scheduled live meet-ups online will be held.

All participants much be based in Northern Ireland or border counties.

You can find out more and register at Eventbrite (there are still places available as of this morning) or seek more information from Laura Aguiar at
