When I get a chance (which won’t be until after Christmas), I’m going to post an entry about searching the Tithe Applotment Books for various ancestors. I think I have found my Lahey ancestors, for example, who emigrated to Upper Canada from Killycross Upper, Ballymacegan, Lorrha, Tipperary.
But for now, just a brief post to note that the Tithe Applotment Books (one of the most important census substitutes for Irish genealogy) are available online at two different locations:
- At familysearch.org: Ireland, Tithe Applotment Books, 1814-1855
- At the National Archives of Ireland: Tithe Applotment Books, 1823-1837
The National Archives of Ireland’s The Tithe Applotment Books: About the Records is well worth reading.
