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. Videos will be released on the dates shown, but can be accessed at any time afterwards through the links below. Click the button below, or on any of the video titles, to link through to the training videos.
Introduction pt 1: Place-names, maps, surnames
Introduction pt 2: Archives
Civil registration of births, deaths and marriages
Valuation records pt 1
Valuation records pt 2
Landed estate papers
Wills and testamentary papers
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 is 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 email@example.com.
