Ulster Historical Foundation - new books and updated Co. Antrim records source list

The Ulster Historical Foundation ( has updated its source list for vital records on its database for County Antrim - the new list can be accessed at The equivalent list for County Down is currently being updated.

Note that some Ulster Historical Foundation records are also available on RootsIreland (, but if using a debit card on that site I noticed recently that purchases there add an extra 1 Euro on top of the subscription cost asked for. There is a source list for UHF supplied records on that site also, I've yet to compare them, but suspect the UHF's own site will be more complete. However, if you have a tonne of records to look up, it may work out as a cheaper option to use a subscription there instead - it's worth weighing up what is on offer from both sites for your needs.

The organisation also has two new books available on special offer for February:

Men and Arms: The Ulster Settlers, c. 1630, retails at £19.99, Members can purchase it for only £13.99 using the coupon code found in the members' area of the website. Non-members, using code FebFever, can purchase it for £16.99.

The Famine in Ulster, retails at £11.99, Members can buy it now (using the coupon code), for only £8.39 (non-members, using code FebFever, can purchase it for £10.19).

(With thanks to the UHF)
