PRONI has a vast array of records which would be of interest to local historians or people researching their family history. “All of the records are free to access and some records such as street directories, wills directories and valuation revision books can be accessed online on the PRONI website. “PRONI staff have a wealth of knowledge regarding the information available and are on hand to help members of public access records or use the viewing machines to see copies of original documents.
