ancestry is often hard to trace reliably, but there has been a real push to get
Irish genealogy resources online.

announcement of it here.
The Irish Genealogical Research
launched an online index to its annual journal The Irish Genealogist. The journal was first published in 1937 and
contains hundreds of thousands of family names with reference to a variety of
Censuses and Guiness
has added to their Irish records with three new databases:
Ireland Guinness Archive Index, 1824-2002
Ireland Census 1901 Census
Ireland Census 1911 Census
The census records are an index only but they link to the National
Archive of Ireland, which then allows you to view the images.
Guinness Archive is employee records and include details such as name, date of
birth, date of death, date they joined the company, spouse name etc.
Tithe Applotment Books
are available on FamilySearch and determine the amount which occupiers of
agricultural holdings over one acre should pay in tithes
to the Church of Ireland. Urban areas are not included. FamilySearch has all of these Tithe
Applotment Books indexed, as well as links to the original images.
The Irish Genealogical Research Society's
Marriage Finder has now reached 50,000 names. It features information gathered
from an array of sources, including Chancery bills, diaries, deeds, marriage
settlements, memorial inscriptions, wills, family letters and newspaper
cuttings. The database is online and free to use on the website of the IGRS at http://www.irishancestors.ie/?page_id=1926 and a "how to use it" introduction is available at http://www.irishancestors.ie/?page_id=1921.
