1939 National Register - Northern Ireland

So we know about releases for the 1939 National Register now in Scotland, England and Wales - but what about the six counties of Northern Ireland, I hear you ask?

I received the following statement from the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) yesterday:

"I can confirm that the National Register records in Northern Ireland are held by the Public Record Office (PRONI) but they are not currently available to the public.

"PRONI will need to consult with other organisations as it considers how they might be made available in the future."

There are currently no plans to have the 1939 records released just now, particularly as PRONI is about to undergo a major move to new facilities in Belfast's Titanic Quarter (with a nine month closure later this year to facilitate the move).
