Websites for Irish Research
« on: 04 January, 2009, 15:51 »
The following are websites that I think might help with researching in Ireland:

http://griffiths.askaboutireland.ie  -  information contained in Griffith's Evaluation  - names, townlands, occupiers, owners, etc.

http://waterfordcountylibrary.ie/en  -  Right-hand lower corner are links for the OSI Historical Mapping Archive (can be printed;
                                                    large sizes can be bought) and Griffith's Primary Evaluation of Ireland and a link for the
                                                    Irish Times Digital Archive (paid subscriptions, but can be for only one day).
                                                    Left-hand upper corner, there is a listing for Family History, and from there you can get into
                                                    a Death Register for Waterford County.  There is also a lot more information for Waterford
                                                    County on this site.

I tried the links as posted, but they both failed.

Maybe you meant these?

http://www.waterfordcountylibrary.ie/en/

The ending slashes are important...

Also, there is of course the Dalton Data Bank Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland Sections http://www.daltondatabank.org

The 1911 census for Ireland is now online, free.  The 1901 census will be added later.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/


The national records office for Northern Ireland also has an email site with searchable records.

Thanks for the information.

I have added links on the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland web pages in the Dalton Data Bank.
