Exploring Your Archives in Depth: Practical Workshops in Family and Local History, Jan-Feb 2014

During this series, five specialists from external institutions came to PRONI to discuss key sources for family and local history research. Many of these sources were at least partially available online. As result, the speakers provided historical background on these sources, as well as practical guidance on using these as research tools.
