Product Description

In all genealogical work the first and most important step is to establish the geographical origin of the ancestor. In Irish research the genealogist may know the name of the county where the ancestor lived but be puzzled about a place name given as the place of birth or residence. In all probability the place-name is that of a townland, the smallest territorial subdivision in Ireland. Since research in Ireland will usually start at the parish level, there must be a reference tool that will key the townland to the parish in which it is located. This work was prepared under the auspices of the British government for almost that purpose. The over 900 densely printed pages show the county, barony, parish, and poor law union in which the 70,000 townlands were situated in 1851, as well as the location of the townlands on the Great Ordnance Survey maps, with appendices containing separate indexes to parishes and baronies

5.0 out of 5 stars Index to the Townlands and Towns Parishes and Baronies of Ireland 4 Jun 2009
By Classic Jazz - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Although this is available on-line, holding the book in hand to methodically review various spellings is so much easier for me. This book is indispensable for early research in Ireland. It helps make sense of the research in the deeds, memorials and transcripts. Contiguous lands are more easily identified. Additionally, the townlands, baronies and parishes which may be used interchangeably in the deeds, memorials and transcripts are grouped together in the book. This permits the researcher to recognize that the same piece of land may have alternate descriptors in deeds several decades removed from each other. Am looking forward to in depth study of this book's references and comparing those with the deeds, memorials and transcripts.
