One-third of 1911 Irish census now online


Active member
Last night, the National Archives of Ireland met their much revised deadline (by a whisker!) and quietly released the 1911 census for counties Cork, Donegal, Galway, King's (Offaly) and Wexford. They join the returns for Antrim, Down, Dublin and Kerry. The indexes and images can be viewed, free, at www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search.

In these cash-strapped days, here's a useful tip for squeezing more out of your family history budget. Instead of printing off the household return image from your screen, transcribe your ancestors' details onto a free blank census form. They use considerably less expensive printing ink.

Another third of the 1911 census is due to be released in six weeks. The final third at the end of August.

Happy researching, everyone.
