Family Names in the Glens of Antrim – Subscription

New Publication  - Coming Summer 2021

Ulster Historical Foundation is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Brian Turner’s Family Names in the Glens of Antrim.

This publication explores the historical and social significance of the family names of a distinctive region in the north-east of Ireland – the Glens of Antrim.

The area has both a strong local identity and a significant relationship with south-west Argyll in Scotland. Drawing on many years of research, the author describes and explains the evolution of the historical landscape through an examination of the names of its people.

The book includes numerous surname distribution maps as well as photographs and other illustrative material.
