Records can be retrieved by submitting a Subject Access Request to the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) requesting an individual’s own information.
The best way to identify if PRONI holds information for an institution on a particular date is to check the PRONI catalogue.
For additional information or assistance with retrieving records, online enquiries can be submitted to PRONI here.
