Paper Trail offers free training to victims and survivors of the conflict in the north of Ireland.

Training is usually 1 day from 930am – 5pm and includes:

  • ✔ Introduction to Archives: learn about the archives in your area, some of which you may walk past every day and yet they are open to all of us. Examine documents and learn what to look for. Hear how you can use Freedom of Information to work for you.
  • ✔ Tour of Public Records Office Northern Ireland (PRONI): register for free and learn how to use the superb facility to access information in their files
  • ✔ Oral History Training: learn best practice when interviewing and recording friends and family for your research
  • ✔ Workshop: discuss what archives could help your work and then your journey begins

Training free to victims and survivors of the conflict thanks to funding from the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme which is managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) and Victims and Survivors Service.
