Open University Exploring Family History Lecture Series

PRONI has held a series of talks in partnership with the Open University, which illuminated records tied to family history.  Themed by occupation or vocation, these presentations expressly sought to explore archival records that shed light on the working lives of families.  Examples from PRONI's collections were included in these talks, which were delivered by Dr. Janice Holmes and Dr. Barry Sheehan from the Open University
