Griffiths Valuation

Ever tried to find out anything about Irish Ancestors? If the answer is ‘YES’, then you will probably know about Griffiths Valuation. The Primary Valuation was the first full-scale valuation of property in Ireland. It was overseen by Richard Griffith and published between 1847 and 1864. It is one of the most important surviving 19th century genealogical sources. The Library holds the index to Griffiths Valuation of Ireland 1848 – 1864 on CD-ROM, but there is now a website to make searching easier.
