Tracing your Irish Ancestors conference in Belfast

From the Ulster Historical Foundation (

We are delighted to advise that the website for the Foundation’s next family history conference Tracing your Irish Ancestors is now live ( Running from 6-12 September 2015, Tracing Your Irish Ancestors is aimed at both the dedicated family historian and those who may prefer to spend more time savouring the enchanting landscape and historic sites of their ancestors.

The week will comprise an engaging and entertaining mix of research in the archives with the help of the Foundation’s experienced genealogists, talks from acknowledged experts and a variety of tours, all making for a memorable experience. Highlights from the varied programme include visits to Titanic Belfast and the Giant’s Causeway, the National Archives in Dublin and the famous Walls of Derry, dinner at Belfast’s historic Reform Club and afternoon tea at Barons Court, home to the Duke of Abercorn.

So why not banish those winter blues (and at this time our thoughts are with our friends in the north east of the United States and Canada who are suffering such extreme weather) and lift your spirits by booking a place on Tracing Your Irish Ancestors? You will be very welcome.

If you have any queries, please email:
