Civil Records of births marriages and deaths start for everyone in 1864 after the major wave of migration to the new world.
The only census available begin in 1901, prior to 1901 they were mostly destroyed.
Property and land valuations are used instead of Census to locate 19 th century households.
Occupation and street directories are also of assistance in that regard. Generally its possible
to work both church, civil and taxation records together to identify where a family was living
prior to emigration.
The majority spoke Gaelic Irish well into the 19 th century but their surnames were generally recorded phonetically or in translation in English by those creating the records.
This is the origin of a great deal of variant spellings and forms to be negotiated. In addition personal names are frequently either recorded in their Latin form by clergy or in an English equivalent. Scots language names are also recorded in English in records with variants in spellings as a result.
Place Names and Parishes
Civil Parishes are used for taxation purposes and land record purposes.
Church parishes do not necessarily share the same boundaries or names as civil parishes More local place names such as townlands are recorded phonetically in English but were actually in Gaelic or in a minority of cases in Scots with the result that many variant spellings can occur.
