Family History - Irish Related Links
|The Griffith's Primary Valuation was the first full-scale valuation of property in Ireland. It was overseen by Richard Griffith and published between 1847 and 1864. It is one of the most important surviving 19th century genealogical sources. On this site you may search by Family Name or Place name.|

a PDF file containing a good general introduction to the sixteen-volume
collection of works of the same title edited by Dr. Albert Eugene Casey.
These volumes contain a vast amount of primary Irish resources of the
West Cork and East Kerry area and have more than 3,000,000 individual
Irish personal names in the indexes. If you use these records you
are likely to find records from a treasure trove of genealogical
resources, such as baptisms and marriages (mostly Roman Catholic, but
also Church of Ireland and Quaker), family histories, pedigrees,
newspaper abstracts, rental lists and estate ledgers, indexes to wills,
extracts from Tithe Applotment Books and Griffith’s Primary Valuation,
Elizabethan fiants, census fragments, tombstone inscriptions and even
excerpts from the Annals of the Four Masters.
How can you access these volumes? The State Library of New South Wales has a full set of the books in the overseas records section of the Family History room. Also, the Society of Australian Genealogists has a near full set (their catalogue indicates volumes 1, 2 and 5 are missing). Also, the LDS Family History Library has microfilmed the set up to volume 14 as films 823801-823809. You should be able to order these through the local LDS Research Centres.
|This site has the full Irish Census of 1911 and it may be searched for free. It holds the household returns and ancillary records for the censuses of Ireland of 1911 from the National Archives of Ireland.|
|This site is a good start to tracing Irish family history and has a small but growing database of searchable church records of Dublin and Kerry Dioceses. Work has commenced to complete the computerisation of the remaining available records for Dublin and Kerry and the remaining records for County Carlow. Records from the Diocese of Cork and Ross which encompasses Cork City and all of the parishes in West Cork will be added next. It is intended to have these elements of the project completed and available online by the mid-2010.|
