PRONI talk on Irish emigration & the Famine

From the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (www.proni.gov.uk):

This is just a reminder that PRONI will host a special workshop-style talk tomorrow on Irish emigration and the Great Famine of 1845-52.

PRONI’s very own Dr. Anne McVeigh will look at the state of the Irish population before the Famine, before moving on to address who exactly left these shores and why; from aristocrats and gentry, to cottiers and labourers.

Dr. McVeigh will also provide guidance on key online resources for researching Irish emigrants, which may prove extremely useful for those researching their own family history.

The talk takes place from 1pm to 2pm in PRONI’s lecture theatre, tomorrow, the 9th of April.

Admission to this talk is FREE, but please contact PRONI on proni@dcalni.gov.uk or telephone 028 90 534800 to reserve your place.

See you there!
