About this event

As part of the national UK and Ireland ‘Explore Your Archives Week’, and to mark his recent publication, PRONI is delighted to host a talk by Dr William Roulston, Research Director of the Ulster Historical Foundation, on ‘Researching farming ancestors in PRONI’.

Agriculture has been central to Irish life for centuries and the backbone of the rural community is the farming family. The aim of this talk is to help those with roots in the farming community in Ireland find out more about their ancestors through identifying documentary sources of relevance.

The specific focus of this talk is on records held by the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, but the principles outlined can be applied across the island. Much attention will be directed towards the value of landed estate papers and how these can assist researchers discover more about farming families.

This event is taking place on Zoom. Registration closes one hour before the event and an invite link will be sent to everyone registered one hour before the beginning of the event.
