Successful Online Genealogy course delivered

A big thank you to Fintan Mullan and Gillian Hunt of the Ulster Historical Foundation for facilitating a 5-week genealogy course focusing on how to research Armagh and Lurgan ancestors who emigrated around the world.

Over the last 5 weeks we were joined by a series of international guest speakers, including Chris Paton, Dave Millar, Melanie McLennan and Dr Perry McInytre, who delivered a series of high quality, informative and enjoyable talks providing an insight into the sources available to research ancestors who emigrated to Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia. We are very grateful to them for their contributions.

Also thanks to the 150 people who registered and attended the course from around the world; we hope the series proved useful – Wednesday evenings will not be quite the same now!

This course was supported through the Lurgan Townscape Heritage Scheme and Armagh City Townscape Heritage Scheme; initiatives funded by the Armagh City, Banbridge & Craigavon Borough Council and Lottery Players through the National Lottery Heritage Fund Northern Ireland; and the Friends of Shankill Graveyard.
