Irish Census Records, 1901 and 1911, Now Being Digitized

The household returns and ancillary records for the censuses of Ireland of 1901 and 1911, which are in the custody of the National Archives of Ireland (An Chartlann Náisiúnta), represent an extremely valuable part of the Irish national heritage. With this in mind the NA is digitising and making available online all these records at

The records for 1911 are being digitised first, then those for 1901. Starting today (4 December 2007), the records for Dublin in 1911 are available. The order in which counties will be made available after this date is: Kerry, Antrim & Down, Donegal, Cork, Wexford, Galway, King’s County (now known as Offaly), Limerick, Mayo, Waterford, Armagh, Carlow, Cavan, Clare, Fermanagh, Kildare, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Londonderry (also known as Derry), Longford, Louth, Meath, Monaghan, Queen’s County (now known as Laois), Roscommon, Sligo, Tipperary, Tyrone, Westmeath and finally Wicklow.

Thanks to Legacy user, Dermot McGlone, for letting us know about this great new resource.

Great news --- I have had difficulty getting information out of Ireland.

Great news, particularly re 1901. My husband's father arrived by ship in Canada in 1899, but we know some of the family didn't come over until later, and are also trying to find relatives who stayed in Ireland. The 1901 should be of great help!
