Introduction: ÔÇÿAll Ireland SourcesÔÇÖ is a monthly newsletter distributed free by E-mail to Family History Societies and interested researchers near the end of each month.
Distribution by Australia Post each three months (three issues) costs $6.00 annually within Australia.

Back copies available free for downloading from Note new email address.

(Continued from Volume 9, page 8)

[10]. World War I: IrelandÔÇÖs Memorial Records: World War I, 1914-1918
i was digitised and published by Eneclann in 2005 from the eight volumes compiled and published in 1923 by the Committee of the Irish National War Memorial. Only 100 copies were ever printed. Names and details of over 49,000 individuals who died in WWI are included with every page scanned and included on the CD.

[11], The Hamilton Manuscripts:
ii Before the Plantation of Ulster, two Ayrshire Scots, James Hamilton and Hugh Montgomery, pioneered a massive migration from the lowlands of Scotland to County Antrim and County Down. Starting in May 1606, over ten thousand mainly Presbyterian Lowland Scots made the three hour voyage across the North Channel, transforming barren Ulster into an industrial powerhouse. This was the dawn of the Ulster-Scots. ÔÇ£The Hamilton Manuscripts, containing some account of the Settlement of the Territories of the Upper Clandeboye, Great Ardes and Dufferin in the County of DownÔÇØ edited by T. K. Lowry, published in 1867, 283 pages. And ÔÇ£The Montgomery Manuscripts, 1603-1706, compiled from Family PapersÔÇØ edited with notes by Rev. George Hill, published
1869, 504 pages. Both are on a double CD set published in 2006 for the 400th anniversary of the event. A copy has been donated to the SAG library.

[12]. Resource County Roscommon:
iii Compiled and published by John Hunter of Brisbane this CD has 99 documents and 105 maps and includes the 37,000 GriffithÔÇÖs
Valuation occupiers including changes of ownership up to 1920. It is
supplemented by a disk 2 which includes surname distribution, an index to the 1749 census of Elphin Diocese, graveyard locations, names and location of Catholic churches and an index to the Roscommon Journal 1986-2006. Resource County Leitrim by the same author is similar with maps and documents but without the GriffithÔÇÖs Valuations. John Hunter is continuing to refine the records and maps of counties Leitrim and Roscommon and I wish him every success. Contact John HunterÔÇÖs home page Orders from outside Australia ÔÇô email

[13]. Sinn Fein and Republican Suspects, 1899-1921:
iv This six CD set of the Dublin Castle RIC Special Branch Files (CO 904) published by Eneclann in 2006 contains the individual files of over 400 individuals. It covers Home Rule agitation, the outbreak of World War I, the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence. The series runs from 1899 to the Treaty of 1921. The originals are held in the National Archives of Kew. This covers record boxes 193-216 and runs to more than 19,000 pages.

[14]. Alumni Dublinenses:
v This digitised book is a register of students, graduates, professors and provosts of Trinity College, in the University of Dublin from 1637-1846. Fully searchable and lists father, address, teacher, status and graduate degrees 10

[15]. The 1798 Rebellion:
vi This CD brings together some of the remaining primary records
of people involved in the conflict. It contains two lists of individuals who
made claims for compensation for loss of property during the rising and also two lists of rebels who surrendered in Dublin City and Coolock Barony. There are over 8,000 names, covering those who took up arms and those whose property was damaged.

[16]. The 1831 Tithe Defaulters:
vii Tithes were paid to the Church of Ireland by all landholders in rural areas, irrespective of religious persuasion.
It was in kind until 1823 when it was required by law to be paid in cash.
However in 1831, many people refused to pay this tithe, and so started the Tithe War, which was more severe in the South East of Ireland. The names on the CD are those listed by Church of Ireland clergy as having refused to pay their tithe.
The people most affected by the Tithe War are those most affected by emigration and famine in the next generation. The legislation was repealed in 1838.

[17]. Journals published on CD:
Some journals have been digitised and published on CD,
making them word searchable and an excellent source of information. It then becomes easy to check the original source making the information a primary record.

17.1 The Irish Ancestor, 1969-1986:
viii This is a complete run of this journal edited by Rosemary Ffolliott. There are 33 issues, four supplements and
over 2,800 pages with many illustrations. Articles range from An Index to Raphoe Marriage Licence Bonds, 1710-1755 and 1817-1830, Tombstones in Kilbride Graveyard, Callan Parish, County Kilkenny and Christian Names in Ireland.

17.2 The Irish Genealogist, 1937-1993:
ix The Irish Genealogist is the official organ of the Irish Genealogical Research Society which is still published annually.

are the maps of Dublin City from the 1847 Ordnance Survey maps and these may be selected and selected areas printed. It contains over 60,000 names and addresses. The original 1851 census was lost in the 1922 Four Courts fire.

[19]. Counties in Time: Documents and Commentaries from the National Archives of Ireland:
xii A good self teaching CD with examples of most record forms and a
description of how the records were gathered and arranged with digital images of sample completed forms such as 1901 Census, 1911 Census, Tithe Applotment Book, etc. Also good for training and teaching family historians, researchers and library assistants.

[20]. Directories:
xiii It is easier to locate the directory you want to use by checking and using the information in GrenhamÔÇÖs RecordFinder
as the title, year and coverage are all summarized therein. Note: Many other Irish sources have been or are being published on CD including directories.
There are many more records available than those IÔÇÖve listed and spoken about here today as I have not touched Irish records generated in the Australian Colonies such as the Immigration Deposit Journals Series of CDs compiled by Pastkeys and published by GouldÔÇÖs.
