Established in 1956 the aim of the Foundation is to encourage an interest in the history of the province of Ulster; promote a positive image of Northern Ireland overseas; strengthen cross-community links through the understanding of Northern Ireland’s history; broaden access to historical documents and records for Irish genealogy; and to inspire pride in Irish and Scots-Irish heritage.
The Ulster Historical Foundation is a long-established, highly reputable research and publishing agency. It offers its extensive knowledge to help on the sources available to discover Irish and Scots-Irish ancestors.
We are an educational non-profit organisation. Our aim is to encourage an interest in the history of the province of Ulster; promote a positive image of Northern Ireland overseas; strengthen the links between Ireland and those of Ulster descent; broaden access to historical documents and records for Irish and Scots-Irish genealogy; and to inspire pride in Irish and Ulster heritage and culture.
Since established in 1956 the Foundation has become one of the leading genealogical research organisations in the British Isles, with a worldwide reputation for the delivery of quality search reports, lecture tours in America and Australia, and the promotion of international conferences here in the north of Ireland.
It has become a major publisher of specialised and scholarly works of Irish interest that commercial considerations might have prevented from reaching the bookshops. More emphasis now is concentrated on building considerable databases for the use of its members. Our "Ulster Genealogical and Historical Guild" has close to 2,000 members across the globe. All of whom have an interest in family history. Our Guild acts as a research cooperative where members can interact, share information and discoveries with eachother. As part of their membership, each year Guild members receive two publications. Familia: Ulster Genealogical Review, our annual historical journal which includes essays from renowned historians and our Directory of Irish Family History Research which includes the research interests of all of our members as well as editorials and research assistance guides.
Over these years the Ulster Historical Foundation has developed into one of the principal genealogical research agencies in Ireland and a leading publisher of quality historical, educational and genealogical books. It also operates a membership association called the Ulster Historical and Genealogical Guild, the aim of which is to bring together people from all over the world in their quest to discover Irish and Scots-Irish ancestors.
Ulster Historical Foundation is entirely self-funded. We depend on the support of our customers and members to continue to provide the range of services that we currently offer.
