Templepatrick Presbyterian Church Census,
1831 In a further
addition to our Church Census Collection, we've recently included over 1,000 new
records listing members of the 1831 Templepatrick Presbyterian Church
Congregation in County Antrim.
Our Exclusive Church Census Collection
offers a valuable resource to researchers looking for ancestors during a period
of Irish History which is sadly lacking in Official Census records. Look out for
our regular updates of further church census records being added during Spring
& Summer 2013.
PRONI to release Griffiths Valuation Revision Books
online The Public Record
Office of Northern is scheduled to release online access to the Griffith's
Valuation Revision (or Cancelled Land) Books from Wednesday 27th March
Griffith's Valuation lists occupiers of land in Ireland in the mid
19th Century and is a great starting point for establishing what area your
ancestors might be from. While the original Griffith's Valuation has been
available online for some time at
www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/, the Revision
Books now being placed online mean that researchers can follow changes in the
land ownership in subsequent years. This often provides clues as to dates of
death and the names of subsequent generations of the same family. Keep an eye
out for this long awaited release containing almost 450,000 page images at

Harrington in Cumbria is where my Grandfather was born.. I am planning a trip to the UK this year and i thought it would be nice to visit the little town ,where so many Irish made their home after leaving Ireland. I have just found on a Harrington Web site a photo of the Towns War Memorial and there was my Great Uncle's name Alan McMullen.
