My Ancestors Were ...
The North of Ireland Family History Society (NIFHS) has a collection of specialist sources about people in the past and their activities including several volumes from the series My Ancestors Were … These excellent books direct the reader to many specialist sources of information including lists of names that might otherwise be difficult to locate; they also provide useful background information on occupations, on religious denominations and on other aspects of people’s lives. This can be invaluable when writing a family history as such background information can help to paint a vivid picture of a person’s life. The books are published by the Society of Genealogists and are shelved in the Randal Gill Library. These books are for consultation in the Library and not for borrowing.
The books are shelved at M 180 in the Randal Gill Library.
