Testimonial from 2015 conference attendees:
Loved this conference last month and so glad I visited the Antrim coast. Wonderfully organized and learned so much history. Highly recommend

What a wonderful week this was, I cannot believe just how many places that we all visited together, thank you so much to everyone involved in all the hard work for giving us such a wonderful time, I also met up with many new friends.
Kay Howard, Essex, England
This conference was extraordinary. It was exceptionally well organized by the most accommodating and professional people – not to mention their wonderful sense of humour. Although I wasn’t able to learn any more about my own ancestors, I did learn a great deal and have new sources of information to explore. Then perhaps another visit to Belfast is in my future. Thank you for a memorable experience.

If it is as wonderful and helpful as your September family history conference, everyone is in for a great time. Everything was great from our guides on the tours, to helpful staff at PRONI and the other places of records/deeds/archives … I now have an understanding of where to look, where to go, and best of all, I was travelling through the same countryside as my ancestors had lived. Met some interesting people in my co-attendees of the conference and some great staff from UHF. Thanks to all of them and wishing the new folks good success! Oh, and bring clothes a bit baggy because the food was wonderful!!!
