Belfast Newsletter

The North of Ireland Family History Society (NIFHS) has an indexed collection of transcriptions of newspaper announcements of births, marriages, deaths and other subjects.  They are in the Randal Gill Library and in due course we plan that those that are clickable will take you to online versions.  Some of these are freely available to any viewer; others are limited to Members only.

There is a Look Up Service available for Members who are unable to visit the Library.

There are also a few unindexed newspapers from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries – see the Oversized Books and Newspapers page.

The British Newspaper Archive has an extensive collection of newspapers online – these are freely available to Members on a computer in the Society’s Office in the Research Centre at Newtownabbey – see the FindMyPast page.
