Journals and Periodicals

The North of Ireland Family History Society subscribes to many local and family history journals, some of which have been indexed



The North of Ireland Family History Society (NIFHS) has runs of 50 or so local and family history journals in its Irish Journal Room.  Included are the Society’s Journal (IR 069) and Newsletters (IR 090). We also have two online Indexes (Gravestone Inscriptions; Miscellaneous Records) to many of the Irish journals.  There are also a few runs of genealogical Periodicals relating to family history.

A full listing of available resources is available in the Library List.

These journals are for consultation in the Library and not for borrowing.  For Members who cannot visit our Research Centre we offer a Look Up Service. Members also have free online access to the back numbers of many other Irish journals at the JSTOR Ireland Collection.


This is the list of journals indexed as of October 2020:

The journals have been indexed resulting in two Indexes as follows:

These two indexes point to a wealth of detailed genealogical information that could otherwise be hard to find.
