You dont need an appointment - just as long as it is within their opening hours.

You will need to register when you first go but this only takes a few minutes.

The only forms you really need to complete are the record request forms when you want to look at a particular set of records or film.

Your time will be spent looking for what records you want to look at in the first place... unless you can make a list before you go.

Anyone going to balmoral public records needs photographic I.D.
To get a copy of the will we traced was only 30 pence, but it takes about an hour. The staff were very helpful,and showed us round the place in case we were interested in other records.

I'm sure your correct bern... Its been so long since I registered I cant remember if I was asked for Photo ID (it would have been my driving licence) but I suppose since you cant even rent a video now without two forms of identification why would PRONI be any different ;D

When you first register you are given a readers card... the new ones are a small plastic card which carries your photo which they take there and then with a webcam.

Here's the photo from my card. On the left hand side it has your name and the right your photo.

Had a look through the Sd's I have online, no Tullyhill, every other Tully under the sun though, what was the surname, might help
