Project 11: Access Inniskillings

Project Partner:

The digitisation will preserve the information for future generations and help sustain the archiving practice within the museum. The records are currently in a poor state and urgent action is needed to rescue them.

The project will leave a legacy in terms of accessibility to information held by the museum for the public, genealogists, historians and families of former service personnel from the Lough Erne region who helped shape world history in the 18th and 19th century. Enniskillen is the only town in the UK to have given its name to two regiments and the Inniskilling Museum is an important regimental collection that records, preserves and presents their history to the public and to the families of those who served in them. The regiments are known both nationally and internationally.
