Ulster Historical Foundation moves

The Ulster Historical Foundation has moved to the Malone Road area of Belfast. From the UHF:

We have successfully moved into our new and permanent premises on the Malone Road in Belfast, this for people who dont know the area, is very close to Queens university and the Belfast museum at Botonic, a very nice area.

By Easter, we hope to have our research centre and library up and running, this will include our complete resource library which is currently in storage and several computer terminals to search our many databases. These facilities will be open to members and to the public, on a reserve basis.

Our Volunteer staff are currently working on several different data bases, the full list will be published and uploaded early in the New Year.

As usual, there is no information on any forthcoming plans to reduce their online database access costs, and as before, for £30 annual membership (with discounted costs for longer membership periods), you are entitled to the privilege of purchasing records online at half price. As I think I've mentioned before, I can't think of another online genealogy supplier that asks for an annual membership subscription but then still charges you substantially for access to its records.

Then again, I can't think of any others based on the Malone Road in Belfast. Which is a very nice area...!
