Months ago, the opportunity came about to attend a genealogical conference in Ireland this September. My 3 x gt.grandfather comes from Ballynure, but I knew little of his parents and relatives and hoped to find out more. The Conference was a week of research and/or visiting places of interest, talks and information. Our days were full and hectic, but I spent a couple of days at PRONI (Public Records Office - Northern Ireland) in Belfast, and the remainder of the time visiting places I'd not been before, as well as a whole day in Dublin. (Photos will be added to the Photo Gallery in due course) Meals and entrance fees were included and we could not criticise the quality of the planning for our every need. I was able to find the birth and baptism of my 3 x gt.grandfather's sister, and the possible plots of land some of the names in my family tenanted around Ballynure. I brought home lots of information which still has to be gone through thoroughly.
