Also from PRONI (, news of a new exhibition launch and talk in Belfast:

Monday 6th June, 1pm – PRONI is pleased to announce that David Snook will be launching his Sailortown Maritime exhibition as well as giving a talk on The merchant seamen of Sailortown, Belfast, 1918.

The is a fascinating exhibition of photographic identity cards, relating to merchant seamen from Sailortown working in home and foreign trade about 1918, with a talk exploring the administrative context of the ID record cards and the unique possibilities offered by the source in the making of family history for people with roots in a storied part of Belfast.

The Topic of Sailortown has proved to be very popular recently within PRONI so we would suggest reserving your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
