A useful resource listing most of the records available within Northern Ireland, and a very good guide to the resources at PRONI. Given the title, I would have welcomed more about sources available in other centres, such as Dublin and London - a lot of records relating to employment and the professions are held nationally and tend to be neglected, so the book is not so comprehensive as it seems, but nevertheless extremely valuable.

Tracing your family tree is an utterly rewarding activity, but never cheap. Subscriptions to websites, trips to record-offices and, of course, books, make it an expensive business.

This slim paperback - beautifully-printed, but just 182 pages, may seem expensive: but if you are tracing Northern Irish Ancestors (as I am), then you need all the help you can get, especially since the 1920s saw the destruction of most of the Irish records by fire.

What an excellent volume! Ian Maxwell knows his way around the surviving records (some are online, others in record offices) better than anyone else, and if you are serious about tracing your Ulster ancestors, Catholic or Protestant, then you need to acquire this book to discover those odd records, lists, trade-diectories, fragments of census records, land-records etc. that will help you to tease out vital ancestral details.

A helpful guide to the many different online and offline sources out there for tracing Northern Irish ancestors. As some records for NI are in the south, a bit more on that would be handy.
