Book offers from Ulster Historical Foundation

From the Ulster Historical Foundation (www.ancestryireland.com):

For those of you looking for your Ulster Ancestors before 1800 the Fighters of Derry is one of the best sources currently available.

First published in 1932 William R. Young's Fighters of Derry for decades been one of the most overlooked works on the Siege of Derry and as a local genealogical resource.

For information on those who were involved in the siege of Derry in 1689 and events during the Williamite War in general, Fighters of Derry is the best source available.

This important publication lists the names of some 1,660 individuals who defended Derry or were associated with William of Orange; for many of them brief biographical sketches are provided. This book provides a real insight into settler society, particularly in north-west Ulster, in the late seventeenth century. Also included in this book is a list of 352 Jacobites, again with biographical sketches for many of them.

This new edition has seen the index revised and substantially extended.
