North to South: Northern Ireland and the History of Australia
Pick a topic of reseach from our online exhibitions options, below, and explore the role of Northern Ireland in the development of Australia. From those taken against their will to the emigrants chasing tales of gold and fortune, the history of Australia is interwoven with the lives of the men, women and children from Ulster who landed on her shores.
PRONI has probably the largest collection of emigrant letters held in any archive centre in the world and the images displayed on the site are taken, in the main, from sources held here, that are open to the public for research and study.
