News from Northern Ireland


Northern Ireland provides the Bank Holiday news, with it remaining somewhat quiet elsewhere.  PRONI have made a couple of announcements of interest: the first concerns local bus services in and around the record office; and the second the launch of a new exhibition entitled A Century of Change, Conflict and Transformation.

Irish researchers may also be interested in the list of forthcoming events for June at Belfast's Linen Hall Library.

TheGenealogist website has also made two recent announcements as regards new records.  Researchers of American records and Worcestershire parish records may wish to investigate, here.

Chris Paton (with the help of Tweeter Sheena Tait) has notified us of the online availability of a major genealogical reference work, namely, A Complete Guide to Heraldry.  See his post, here.


A little 'food for thought' light reading now, with mention of a forthcoming book on The Guardian's website.  It asks which of our historic sites 'made Britain' - see here.
