The Glens of Antrim Historical Society has helpful historical articles as well as oral histories in their “projects” and some transcribed records available for free to family history researchers.

From their website:

“The objects of the society, as laid down in the Constitution, are – the study of the history, traditions and folklore of the Glens of Antrim. The preservation of historical knowledge and objects of historical interest. The social and cultural entertainment of members. The issue of an annual publication. When the Society was formed it was one of only four such Societies in the North. Donegal, Clogher and Armagh were the others. Our society is now recognised as one of the leading historical societies in Ulster, if not in all of Ireland, and a glance at the objects laid down on its formation, show that the aims of the founders, have been faithfully carried out. We look forward with confidence to the future. After a few years in a Portacabin in Cushendall car park the society has acquired premises in the old schoolhouse in Mill Street, and we continue to add to our store of records and archives and expand out website.”
