PRONI News

On March 30 the new Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) opened at its 30 million pound headquarters at 2 Titanic Boulevard, Titanic Quarter in Belfast. The transfer to the new site involved movement of over 40km of documents.

See the exterior of the new building in the YouTube video below.


Chris Paton attended on opening day. Read his review at the Scottish GENES blog.

PRONI is at http://www.proni.gov.uk/.

Also, earlier in the month 53,000 new entries were added to PRONI's Name Search facility comprising eight further pre-1858 will indexes and an index to coroners’ inquests extended by ten years to 1920.
