NIFHS Newsletters


NIFHS Newsletters

The North of Ireland Family History Society (NIFHS) publishes e-mailed newsletters twice a year and these are emailed to all Members supplying an email address.  In addition a number of Branches produce newsletters, on a regular or irregular basis, for their Members.  All these newsletters are shelved in the Irish Journal Room under shelfmark IR 090.


Originally called News 45 when the Society’s premises were at 45 Park Avenue, it is now called NIFHS News.  Prior to 2010, only Associate Members received an email copy of each newsletter.  To continue to take advantage of this email service, please send any changes in your email address to:

Past copies of the newsletters in PDF format are available to view using the links below.  Please bear in mind that some of the details (eg web page links etc.) within the newsletter articles may have changed since their original publication dates.
