The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) is committed to making its archives more widely available.  While PRONI's eCatalogue has made access to PRONI’s archives easier and speedier, in most instances it does not provide information on the actual content of the archives.  PRONI has therefore embarked on a project to improve access to content by producing or reproducing indexes to some of the most popular records.
