Who do you think you are?
Migration and identity in Rathlin, Ballycastle and the Glens

Year 2 (2020-2021) of the Who do you think you are? programme focuses on genealogical research. Over a series of videos, William Roulston of the Ulster Historical Foundation will explore both the practical steps for participants to take when researching family histories, and also outline the available resources on- and off-line, and how to access them.

This page will be used as the portal for participants to access the training videos as they are released:

  • Video set 1 – Friday 4th December at 5pm

    Getting started – place-names, surnames, maps, archives
    Civil records
    Census returns
  • Video set 2 – Friday 11th December at 5pm

    Church registers
    Valuation records – Griffith’s Valuation, Tithe Valuation
    Landed estate papers
  • Video set 3 – Friday 18th December at 5pm

    Wills and testamentary papers
    School records
    Printed sources – directories, newspapers, etc
    Workhouse records

Each set of videos will point people to sources relevant to Rathlin, Ballycastle and the Glens, highlight where they can be found (in archives and online), and provide direction in how to use them for research purposes. Between the release of each video set, participants will have the opportunity to send in any questions they may have, to be answered the following week.

Access will be password protected, but free to all programme participants. If you or your group are based in the Glens of Antrim, Ballycastle or Rathlin, are not already registered on the programme but would like to take part, please contact Museum Services at cms@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk.
