Personal Consultation service is also available.

A one-on-one consultation with one of the speakers can also be arranged. If you have ancestors from the north of Ireland and are not sure where to start or have hit a brick wall, this personal assistance could be invaluable. The research consultations cost $35 for a ½ hour appointment; payment is due at the time of the consultation which will take place at the workshop. As some work can be done in advance on research assessments, interested parties should fill out the Consultancy form and mail it to the Ulster Historical Foundation.
