[4qd-bannvalley] Ulster Covenant Search

Dear list,

Here is an invaluable resource for digging up names and linking them to 
places at the time of the covenant.


"The Ulster Covenant was part of a response by Ulster Unionists to the 
efforts of successive Westminster governments to settle the running sore 
of the 'Irish Question' by giving Ireland a limited measure of local 
autonomy known as 'Home Rule'. The first two Home Rule Bills, in 1886 
and 1893, had been rejected by Parliament, following concerted pressure 
from Unionists in Great Britain and Ireland."
