“The Irish are Coming!” is the call you hear these days from Carla Maitland, Public Relations Director and newly elected 2014 Vice President of the Tennessee Genealogical Society. The Ulster Historical Foundation is a ”non-profit organization founded in 1956 to promote interest in Irish genealogy and history, with particular reference to the historical nine county province of Ulster. The Foundation is one of the leading genealogical research agencies in Ireland and a major publisher of historical, educational and genealogical source books. It has also devised a series of ground breaking online historical and genealogical resources, which have helped to transform the availability of Irish records for family historians at home and abroad.”
