Some Useful Resources for Irish Research


Tithe Applotment List http://cotyroneireland.com/tithe/longfieldwest.html

1901 and 1911 Censuses of Ireland http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/

Griffiths Valuation of Ireland (1850s roughly) http://www.failteromhat.com/griffiths/tyrone/longfieldwest.php

Griffiths Valuation of Ireland (more info) http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/

Emerald Ancestors (commerical but free search) http://www.emeraldancestors.com/search/

Flax Growers of Ireland, 1796 http://www.failteromhat.com/flax/tyrone.php

Ulster Covenant of 1912 http://applications.proni.gov.uk/UlsterCovenant/Search.aspx

Irish Pension Records http://www.pensear.org/
Pensear is a commercial site, but the information can be surprising. We know that the Irish censuses for 1841-1891 were destroyed, but sometimes they are quoted as evidence in the pension applications. e.g. 1851 Willm. THOMPSON 50 head married 1825, Jane 40 wife, Robert 20 son, Andr.18 son, Caty 16 daur, Willm.14 son, Alix.7 son, Jane 5 daur, Ann 24 daur, absent.
