Finding Your Irish-Online
February 28, 2013
Irish research was rumored to be impossible in years past; either because of their location or their destruction. However, access to surviving records is becoming easier with digitization and the willingness of libraries and archives to put their holdings online.
One of my favorite sites is the National Archives of Ireland. Below is a list of their digital resources available online:
- National Resources-Introduction
- The 1901 and 1911 online census for all 32 counties
- Tithe Applotment Books
- Soldiers’ Wills
- Treaty exhibition
- CSORP website
Documents of the Month and online exhibitions featured on the National Archives of Ireland's website provide the opportunity to view a selection of their holdings online. Also try: Ireland-Australia transportation records (1791–1853).
You should refer to this website often. They plan to put more records on-line in the future.
