Special opening hours at PRONI in September

More news from PRONI in Belfast (, this time concerning some special opening hours in the weeks ahead:

Good news for those of you who cannot visit PRONI during normal working hours. To celebrate the forthcoming European Heritage Open Days 2014, PRONI will be open to the public on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th September. On Saturday 13th September, PRONI will provide a full service (9am –4.45pm). On Sunday 14th September, the self-service microfilm facility will be available (10am – 4pm). Talks and tours of the building will be available on both days. For more information, please click here.

PRONI will also open its doors to the public on Friday 19th September (4.30pm – 7.30pm) for Culture Night Belfast 2014 . The theme of the evening will be PRONI and the Home Front. For more information click here.

COMMENT: This is exactly what I was referring to a few days ago in my posts about the National Records of Scotland's lack of any similar such provision - see and Whilst PRONI and the National Archives at Kew go out of their way to provide access for those working Mondays to Fridays from 9-5 when they can, the NRS in Edinburgh steadfastly refuses to provide any similar such provision. PRONI here is showing how it can be done - Edinburgh, please take note.


Now available for UK research is the new second edition of the best selling Tracing Your Family History on the Internet: A Guide for Family Historians, whilst my new book British and Irish Newspapers is also now out. And please consider purchasing the great new version of Caledonia by The Libations at 79p via - all profits go to help fund Scottish foodbanks
