PRONI launches monthly First World War extracts

The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland has launched the first of a series of monthly First World War records extracts, in what it describes as a 'blog', though which is in fact a link to a PDF document download.

The August 2014 entry, now available at http://www.proni.gov.uk/august_2014.pdf, contains diary extracts and letters concerning the outbreak of the war, in an eleven page account. All documents quoted have source details included, with the purpose to help provide an idea of the range of materials available in Belfast.

The main access page is at http://www.proni.gov.uk/news_details.htm?newsRef=3236


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And please consider purchasing the great new version of Caledonia by The Libations at 79p via www.caledonia2014.com - all profits go to help fund Scottish foodbanks
