Our Research Director Dr William Roulston is now back in the office after a trip to Minneapolis, Minnesota for the 2016 Celtic Connections Conference 'Celtic Roots Across America' which is co-hosted by the Irish Genealogical Society International and The Irish Ancestral Research Association.
William spoke on the importance of landed estate collections and the records available at the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland - he enjoyed meeting new friends as well as catching up with old friends who had previously attended our own family history conferences in Belfast.
For those of you who were unable to attend this event, don't forget we are currently putting together our annual North American Lecture Tour which will take place in March 2017. If you belong to a historical or genealogical society or know of a library or organisation which would be interested in hosting us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks to Dave Miller for the photographs!
