Description

Find your Ulster ancestors with the help of the Ulster Historical Foundation; providing expert genealogical guidance since 1956

The Ulster Historical Foundation is a long-established, highly reputable research and publishing agency. It offers its extensive knowledge to help on the sources available to discover Irish and Scots-Irish ancestors.

They are an educational non-profit organisation with an aim to encourage an interest in the history of the province of Ulster; promote a positive image of Northern Ireland overseas; strengthen the links between Ireland and those of Ulster descent; broaden access to historical documents and records for Irish and Scots-Irish genealogy; and to inspire pride in Irish and Ulster heritage and culture.

Since established in 1956  the Foundation has become one of the leading genealogical research organisations in the British Isles, with a worldwide reputation for the delivery of quality search reports, lecture tours in America and Australia, and the promotion of international conferences here in the north of Ireland.

It has become a major publisher of specialised and scholarly works of Irish interest that commercial considerations might have prevented from reaching the bookshops. More emphasis now is concentrated on building considerable databases for the use of its members.

Ulster Historical Foundation hosts a number of family history events, conferences and genealogy classes each year all of which are ideally suited for those interested in finding out more about their Ulster ancestors.

Ulster Historical Foundation is a registered charity (NIC100280) and is entirely self-funded. We depend on the support of our customers and members to continue to provide the range of services that we currently offer.
