Irish National Archives – Tracing Your Family History

Launched this week – the new Irish National Archives genealogy website. 

Unlike many Irish genealogy resources, this one is free 🙂 and you don’t have to travel to Ireland

Welcome to the National Archives Genealogy Website. From this page, you can now access the Census Records for 1901 and 1911, the Tithe Applotment Books from 1823 to 1837, and the Soldiers’ Wills from 1914 to 1917.

This site will have large numbers of other genealogical records added to it over the coming years, including

Calendars of Wills and Administrations, 1858 – 1922;
Nineteenth century census survivals, 1821-51;
Valuation Office House and Field Books, 1848 – 60;
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.

Census of Ireland, 1901 and 1911
Tithe Applotment Books, 1823 – 37
Soldiers’ Wills, 1914 – 1917

There are plenty more useful Irish genealogy and history online resources linked in our history forums at Political World.  You are welcome to join our discussions.

  1. I have used this quite a few times (the censuses have been online for a few years now) and am incredibly grateful that it is online as otherwise I would have very sore eyes from micro-fiche reader. The wills are incredibly sad.
