PRONI@Cregagh - microfilm access

From the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland:

The PRONI self-service microfilm facility will open at Cregagh Library, Belfast on Wednesday 8 September 2010 and continue until PRONI re-opens at its new premises in Titanic Quarter in April 2011.

10 Microfilm readers, a microfiche and a reader printer will be available. A booking system will be in place for 5 of the microfilm readers with the remainder available on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Users can reserve slots for 1 or 2 hours, up to a maximum of 2 hours per day.

Advance bookings for microfilm readers may be made after 6 September by telephone (02890 255900) or from 8 September in person at the PRONI Cregagh Library facility.

The booking system will be reviewed subject to demand.

All PRONI self-service microfilms, including church registers, will be available at Cregagh. A full list of these can be seen at self-service collections.

As the 1901 Census is now freely accessible online, it will not be available on microfilm at Cregagh.

Opening Hours for PRONI@Cregagh
Monday 1pm – 5pm
Tuesday 10am – 5pm
Wednesday 10am – 5pm
Thursday 1pm – 8pm
Friday 10am – 5pm

A Microfilm Request facility is now in place for PRONI@Cregagh. Requests may be made until 21 August 2010.

Only microfilms requested in advance will be available due to PRONI’s extended closure for relocation.

Requests for up to 20 reels of microfilms not usually available via the self-service system may be made.

Viewing arrangements at PRONI@Cregagh must be confirmed in advance as the records will not be stored at Cregagh.

To place a request for microfilms please contact PRONI
