Irish Source Records
(Genealogical Publishing Company = http://www.genealogical.com)

ISBN: 9780806397504

Item #: GPC7275

Irish genealogical source records have been prey to an astonishing amount of destruction, the most serious instance of which was a fire at the Public Record Office in Dublin in the year 1922 which destroyed virtually all pre-1901 census records, recorded wills, and Church of Ireland parish registers. Since then, reconstructing the lost records has been a passion of historians and genealogists alike, who have succeeded in patching together substitute records and bringing to light the various indexes, abstracts, and transcriptions of records that had been made before the fire. Many such records have been published by the Genealogical Publishing Company, and they are included on this Family Archive CD (along with some additional records) and linked by a single electronic name index. Along with such celebrated source records as Griffith's Valuation of Ireland, 1848-1864 and the Tithe Applotment Books, 1823-1838, this is one of the most important collections of Irish records available. The following are the books included on the CD:

*A Guide to Copies and Abstracts of Irish Wills
*Indexes to Irish Wills, 1536-1857
*Index to the Prerogative Wills of Ireland, 1536-1810
*Quaker Records, Dublin, Abstracts of Wills
*Return of Owners of Land in Ireland 1876
*Irish Marriages [from Walker's Hibernian Magazine, 1771-1812]
*Ireland: 1841/1851 Census Abstracts (Republic of Ireland)
*Ireland: 1841/1851 Census Abstracts (Northern Ireland)
*County Cork, Ireland, a Collection of 1851 Census Records
