Researching your Irish roots? A new Irish online free resource is now available to aid your research.
Jimmy Deenihan TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht in Ireland, has today formally launched The National Archives of Ireland’s new genealogy-specific website.
The following collections are now freely available on the site:
The census information links to the already established website, but the latter two are newly released today. The Tithe Applotment Books, in particular, are a major resource, being an early 19th century precursor to Griffith’s Valuation; these are the actual images from the books.
Joining the site in near future:
- Calendars of Wills and Administrations (1858-1922)
- Nineteenth-century census survivals (1821-1851)
- Valuation Office House and Field Books (1848-1860)
- Census Search Forms for the 1841 and 1851 Censuses
