Since 2010 with your help, and the help of a number of successful applications to charitable trusts, the Foundation has raised £74,000 in donations to help us realise some important objectives.

  • The 2010 Buy A Brick appeal helped us acquire furniture and shelving that has already been relocated to Bradley Thallon House.
  • The Scanner Appeal enabled us to purchase a large A1-sized flatbed scanner which has facilitated digital capture of valuable original sources such as church records, which are used to create online databases.
  • The 2015 Buy A Brick campaign helped build up office equipment including approximately 140 metre-run of library shelving and 60 metres of storage shelving, all of which will house the enhanced library collection in Bradley Thallon House.
  • The Adopt A Book Fund enabled UHF to acquire new genealogy titles for the research library and to make a start on repairing some library bindings.

Your engagement, support and donations have enabled the Foundation to continue to realise our mission as a leading historical and genealogical research and publishing institution on the island of Ireland with a worldwide reputation.

We have ambitions to go on serving our members, expanding services we provide to you and the general public, and providing access to resources and expertise that can help you to discover your story – the story of individual families on this island.
