Ulster Historical Foundation conferences in 2016

From the Ulster Historical Foundation (

Family History Conferences 2016

Members and friends of the Foundation will be aware that following the recent success of Tracing Your Irish Ancestors, we will be hosting two family history conferences in June and September 2016.

Both events will combine a varied and exciting mix of research opportunities in the archives (including the National Library and National Archives in Dublin), talks from acknowledged experts and a choice of tours to a number of historic sites, including Kilmainham Gaol and Trinity College, Dublin, Barons Court, the palatial country house of the Duke of Abercorn in county Tyrone, Titanic Belfast and the world famous Giant’s Causeway.

The Foundation’s popular family history conferences are therefore ideally suited to the keen family historian who will be given assistance by our experienced genealogists throughout the week and also those who favour learning more about the Ireland of their ancestors as we travel through our verdant countryside en route to our selection of famous sites and locations.

Our summer conference will run from 15-22 June and our autumn conference from 4-10 September. For more information on both events and guidance on how to register, please visit our conference websites:

Summer conference, 15-22 June 2016

Autumn conference, 4-10 September 2016

Feedback from the delegates who attended our autumn 2015 conferences has been very positive with many considering a return to our shores in 2016. We hope that you will also join us for Tracing Your Irish Ancestors in 2016 and experience the perfect combination of productive genealogical research, a host of interesting tours and of course good company and good conversation.

Please note that for early bird registrations received by 31 January 2016, the special price of £699.99 will apply.

(With thanks to the UHF)
