Glasgow poor law records talk in Belfast

Irene's off to Belfast! From the website of the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (

Dr Irene O’Brien, the City Archivist for Glasgow will be giving a public presentation on Scottish Poor Law Records. This will take place in the Lecture Theatre at PRONI at 2pm on Friday 25 November. Irene will highlight the wonderful riches within the poor law records in Glasgow City Archives. The wide-range of biographical information about so many of the poor makes these records one of the most important sources for family history. The large number of Irish applicants means they are a vital source for those with Irish ancestors.

Admission is FREE and open to all but booking essential. Please contact PRONI / email to secure your place.
