Voices from the Past recordings on Ulster Historical Foundation site

From the Ulster Historical Foundation (

Voices from the Past Lecture Series

Guild members can check out our latest additions to the Members’ Area as we have started to digitise audio recordings from some of our past conferences. Our ‘Voices from the past’ lecture series should prove to be a great resource for those interested in genealogy and history.

Some of these speakers unfortunately are no longer with us and thus the recordings are a rare opportunity to enjoy some very distinguished academics and archivists giving advice on using historical sources in Ireland. This week’s additions include:

  • Valuation records: A valuable resource for Genealogists by Trevor Parkhill
  • New Light at the Cape of Good Hope by Prof. Leslie McCracken
  • Family Research in the Registry of Deeds by Dr Katharine Brown
  • Sources in PRONI relating to education by Dr Roger Strong

All these recordings are available in the members area of our website, with Dr Katherine Brown's lecture on Family Research in the Registry of Deeds available on our homepage.

The society has also announced that its January Sale has been extended, offering 50% off all birth, death and marriage records until February 9th 2015.

(With thanks to the UHF)
