Tracing Our Family Roots

Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council Peace IV Programme in partnership with Rural Community Network (RCN) is offering a free six-week programme for people living in the Council area called Tracing Our Family Roots. This programme has been very popular in the past in terms of researching family history through the archives and understanding history at that time.

The course will take place on the following dates - all Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 9pm at Laurencetown, Lenaderg & Tullylish Community Association Centre, Laurencetown BT63 6DU

• 4th February 2020

Study Visits:

  • 14th February 2020 (10.00am to 3.30pm) NI Public Records Office (PRONI), Belfast
  • 29th February 2020 (10.00am to 3.30pm) Walking tour of Banbridge town and surrounding area

This programme will be delivered by Pauline Loughran. Those taking part will need to bring their own laptop or tablet each week. This is essential.

Due to the popularity of this project, we welcome participants who have never engaged in a Peace IV Programme before and those from all sections of the community especially those from rural communities.

Places will be allocated to reflect the diverse nature of ABC Council area with a priority placed on encouraging people who have not been involved in similar programmes.

Spaces are limited. Please contact Teresa McKernan at RCN to express your interest in this project by emailing or ring RCN on 028 8676 6670.
