PRONI at Cregagh

The construction of the new Public Record Office of Northern Ireland in the Titanic Quarter is almost complete and work is now udnerway to move all the records to the new building.  This is a major undertaking but will be completed early next year and will be ahead of schedule.  During this period there is no public access but more records have been made available on the internet and the microfilm church records are now available at Cregagh Library. 

Yesterday morning I visited the library to see this temporary facility and meet staff from the library and from PRONI.  I was pleased to see that the service was being well used and this is indeed a reflection of the interest that there is in genealogy.
