Ballymoney Family History Event

Dear Family Historian,
It’s just a month until the next Route Back Home family history conference and it’s promising to be the best ever, I hope you’ll be able to join us!
 
The programme has plenty to appeal to everyone interested in genealogy who has family in North Antrim.  Local researchers will be joining us every day to provide support and expertise and delegates will be able to chat and exchange ideas and information throughout the four exciting days.
 
The success of previous conferences has encouraged BBCTV to send a film crew. They will focus on two delegates and their story will be broadcast in October on the popular Ulster-Scots programme ‘The Gaitherin’ http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b046s2nc/episodes/guide .
 
If you haven’t booked your place, please make sure you don’t leave it too late.  I hope to see you in the Route next month!
Best wishes,
Keith Beattie
Museum Manager
