Hi Bern,

It is actually baptism records, marriages and deaths (anything to do with Chancellor's) that I would be looking for.

Boy, do I envy you...being able to go to PRONI.

Does the 'code'  - records from 1678; PRONI T808/15307 - indicate if the information is on film or microfiche or print?

Are these records available to be ordered throught the LDS?

Chris
IMHO I would say that in the big room, the stations were too close to-gether for a wheelchair.  I also dont know if a wheelchair would slide under the desk.   Also I feel the focus and reel attachments may be too high for someone who could not stand without holding on.
This should be taken up with PRONI

The microfilm records for Presbyterian Churhes begin with the code MIC/1P/

The code you have is probably a transcript and would be only available at PRONI.

PRONI will be closed for stock-taking from Monday 27 November 2006 to Friday 8 December 2006 plus Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th December and I'd reckon a few days at the beginning of January too. Their "atin hoose" is great ... subsidised meals ... good value and very tasty. I found the service in there was much better than in the main building where you do the research. It would be an idea if they swopped the staff round :D

Some of the documents at PRONI, like those in many other archives, are not open to the public for viewing. However you can apply in writing to view such documents. It's best to call in person as you'll need the reference number of the relevant document when you do apply in writing. Amongst documents not open to the public are some of those relating to Harland and Wolff. If your ancestor worked in the shipyard and you need to apply in writing your message to PRONI then has to be referred to Harland and Wolff who may, or may not, grant permission for the relevant documents to be viewed. If you are not able to view the documents in person someone can view on your behalf. It may be a friend, a member of the PRONI staff (at a charge of 13.30 per hour) or a professional genealogist. This PRONI search facility was introduced in January 2006 after the implementation of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Good morning Christopher! I thought I'd direct this question to you as you seem to have a good knowledge of the PRONI records. A friend in the USA has some will references for her ancestors and would like to know where, if at all possible, she can get copies.
Just what will records are there at PRONI? Are all wills published? I've never gone down this route myself so I don't have a clue! Your advice would be most welcome.
Thank you

Sheila
