Familia: Ulster Genealogical Review is the journal of Ulster Historical Foundation's membership association (an historical research co-operative, known as the Ulster Genealogical and Historical Guild). Each year, in December, members receive Familia and a directory of their research interests, entitled Directory of Irish Family History Research. Non-members can purchase copies of these books. Since 1985, Familia has set a consistently high standard of balanced articles of wider historical and biographical importance, and providing all-important practical advice on sources for Irish family and local history in the nine-county province of Ulster. This edition of Familia includes the following articles: '"Every Picture tells a story': An Irish photographer and his times' by Brenda Collins 'John Ward, 1832-1912: Belfast entrepreneur, artist, writer, collector and Egyptologist' by Roger Dixon 'The Irish Anzacs project' by Jeff Kildea 'The growth of a city: The Belfast Corporation and Council archive in PRONI' by Ian Montgomery 'Dead as a dodo on the island of Mauritius: the fate of a racehorse called 'Faugh-a-Ballagh' by Sean Donnelly 'From twopence coloured to penny plain: The legacy of the Ulster plantation in the historical novels of John Heron Lepper, 1878-1952' by Patrick Maume 'The migratory path of eighteenth-century Ulster Nonconformists: Quaker John Starr of Antrim, Cavan and Pennsylvania' by Steven Morrison "'Roaring Hugh": Rev. Hugh Hanna (1821-92) and his family' by Janice Holmes
