When searching for ancestors, visit the Ulster American Folk Park!
This is one of our favorite blogs from the past and one of our favorite places to stop when in Ireland and Northern Ireland. If you plan to study your Irish family history and plan a trip to Ireland to learn more about your ancestors, one place you need to visit is the Ulster American Folk Park and the Mellon Centre for Migration Studies.
Located in County Tyrone just outside of the town of Omagh, the Park contains over 30 outdoor exhibit buildings which guests can explore. What makes this park different from many others is that the park directs the visitor from the Old World to the New World and what our ancestors experienced in Ireland in the 19th century.
