Ask a Genealogist: Researching in Belfast, Ireland.

 Permanent link
 

Question:

This fall I will be visiting Ireland, and researching my ancestors that lived near Belfast.  Can you recommend some research facilities I can visit?  Also I am looking for a researcher to hire in Ireland.   Looking forward to joining NEHGS on a trip to Ireland in the near future.

Answer:

The best place to go for genealogical research in Belfast is the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (aka PRONI). Their website is www.proni.gov.uk. Although there are buses, they best way to get there is in a taxi. The following is a list of professional genealogists in Ireland, which includes people from Northern Ireland: http://www.apgi.ie/members.html. You can also check with the Ulster Historical Foundation at http://www.ancestryireland.com/.
