Our Family Story: Research Pack

We’re thrilled to announce a brand new product from Ulster Historical Foundation: “Our Family Story: Research Pack”

Buying the perfect present for someone who appears to own everything; is extremely particular; or wants nothing, is not easy.

Rather than the typical Christmas hamper or a pair of socks we hope our new research pack might just be the perfect present for a family member or friend to show that you appreciate them. You may even wish to treat yourself to one!

Every family story is unique and each story is worth telling. Researching your family history is great fun and can be fascinating. Let us help you start your journey into your family's past. A road less travelled...but a journey worth starting.

 How it works

Your research pack will help you (or the recipient) to discover your ancestors. The Foundation will research your family history and produce a genealogical report (to the maximum stated hours in your voucher) based on the information you provide.

This pack will provide you with some resources to begin your information gathering from family members and old documents.

Please note that we carry out archival research for the nine counties which make up the historic province of Ulster (Antrim, Armagh, Cavan, Derry/Londonderry, Donegal, Down, Fermanagh, Monaghan, Tyrone).

If you are interested in archival research for another county, please email for advice before purchasing your research pack.

  • A voucher for a family history report
