Since it was established in 1956, the Ulster Historical Foundation has carved a unique space in the world of genealogy as the only body on the island of Ireland which provides both expertise in family history research and a range of publications of the highest quality.

In addition, we are renowned for the professionalism of our courses in family history, our annual conferences, and the extensive lecture tours we undertake each year in North America and beyond.

The Foundation is an educational non-profit organisation and is entirely self-funded. Your support will help us to continue our work of unlocking the past and strengthening the links between Ireland and those of Ulster descent wherever they may be in the world today.

I am ecstatic with the results [of the research] and I thank you for your efforts on my behalf. This definitely makes my future trip to Ireland more exciting.
