National Archives Dublin opened a new FREE Genealogy site

Post by irishgen » 08 Nov 2012, 19:39

The National Archives in Dublin has launched a new genealogy website which includes some useful sources.

Rather bizarrely, the tithe applotment records cover most counties in Ireland including what is now Northern Ireland, but not County Antrim. I don't know why.

There is a separate database for WW1 soldiers wills which looks promising.

New National Archives genealogy website

November 8, 2012
On 8 November, Jimmy Deenihan TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, launched the NAIÔÇÖs new genealogy website. From this site, you can access the Census records for 1901 and 1911, the Tithe Applotment Books for 1823 to 1837 and the SoldiersÔÇÖ Wills for 1914 to 1917. The site will have a large number of other genealogical records added to it over the coming years.
Including:
1) Calendars of Wills and Administrations (1858ÔÇô 1922);
2) Nineteenth-century census survivals (1821-1851);
3) Valuation Office House and Field Books (1848ÔÇô1860);
4) Census Search Forms for the 1841 and 1851 Censuses.
All of these records will be free to access, through searchable databases and linked images of relevant pages.
Eventually, we hope that the site will contain all of the important and easily accessible genealogical material in the custody of the National Archives.
SoldiersÔÇÖ WillsThe National Archives collection of the wills of soldiers who died in the First World War (1914-1917) is now available free online.
This is the first phase of the project carried out by the National Archives to digitise the 9,000 wills of the soldiers who died.
Work is continuing and the remainder of the collection will be released online in 2013.
