North Irish Roots was first published in 1984 as a means of informing members of the work being done by the North of Ireland Family History Society; the research that members are involved in and items of interest to the membership. It is published twice a year in the spring and the autumn. Members contribute articles of interest to family historians with roots in the North of Ireland.
In addition, when joining the Society or when renewing membership, members may register their interests either in the form of brief surname details or as a special query. They may also register reciprocal research arrangements, by supplying details of the research they require and the research they will undertake in return.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
combined with another title.
