Ballymoney Genealogical Gathering

DO YOU HAVE ROOTS IN ‘THE ROUTE’?
If you have ancestors in North Antrim, then the Route Back Home 2014 is the place to find out more about your family history!
 
The exciting conference gives genealogists from across the world the opportunity to enjoy a unique series of lectures & research trips focusing on Ballymoney and district.
 
The Route Back Home will run from 24-27 September and will be based in Ballymoney Town Hall.  It has been developed to assist people who are specifically researching their ancestry in Ballymoney, Co. Antrim.  The conference is an opportunity to meet other people who share an interest in North Antrim, a region traditionally known as "the Route”.
 
The Route Back Home is run by Ballymoney Museum.  It is supported by the Coleraine Branch of the North of Ireland Family History Society (www. http://colerainefhs.org.uk/) and their members will be available to help delegates and provide advice throughout the conference.
 
HOW DO I BOOK MY PLACE?
Delegates must pay the full booking fee of £180 to be allocated a place at the conference.  Only 20 places are available and bookings cannot be confirmed until receipt of a completed booking form and full payment.  The conference fee includes:
  • Lectures on how to research your ancestry in North Antrim
  • Daily lunch and regular refreshments
  • Conference dinner and drinks reception
  • Research trips to Belfast and Ballymena
 
Please contact me at this email address if you require further information and I look forward to hopefully seeing you in September.
Regards,
