New Online Resource: Connecting Canadians To Their Irish Roots
Posted 22 December 2008
By Sylvie Tremblay, Acting Head, Canadian Genealogy Centre, Client Services Division, Library and Archives Canada
Library and Archives Canada is pleased to announce that its partner, the National Archives of Ireland, has launched the next important phase of an online census research tool for the Irish counties of Antrim, Kerry, and Down for 1911. The census records for all counties for 1911 and for 1901 will be made available online throughout 2009.
Library and Archives Canada signed an agreement with the National Archives of Ireland in December 2005 and the two institutions have been working to make the censuses of Ireland for 1901 and 1911 accessible online, free of charge. Library and Archives Canada's contribution included digitizing microfilm reels, linking images to the database and making the records searchable by name.
"With 70 million Irish diaspora around the world, and up to one-fifth of Canadians claiming Irish heritage, this project will connect even more people to their historical roots," stated Ian E. Wilson, Librarian and Archivist of Canada.
Making these records accessible online will give genealogists and historians around the world the chance to explore the age, occupation, religion and marital status of individuals. It will also allow research on Irish society of the early 20th century. The National Archives of Ireland have provided vibrant historical essays on topics such as social life, government, sport and religion and photographs depicting life in Ireland in 1911.
Library and Archives Canada and the National Archives of Ireland collaborated on other projects including the popular website The Shamrock and the Maple Leaf: Irish-Canadian Documentary Heritage at Library and Archives Canada and two Irish studies symposia were held in Ottawa in 2006 and 2008. There will be additional phases added to the census online in the coming year.
To visit the Irish Census Online and the virtual exhibition on life in Ireland in 1911, please, go to: www.census.nationalarchives.ie (in English only).

BOOK - British Home Children: Their Stories
Compiled by the British Isles Family History Society of Ottawa (BIFHSGO)
Published by Global Heritage Press, Milton, 2010
British Home Children were those who were admitted into a Philanthropic Home, Union Workhouse or Industrial School between 1869 and 1948, from families that had suffered a great tragedy or were dysfunctional. A great many of these children were then brought to Canada where they were received into a Distributing Home for settlement as farm labourers and domestics. To commemorate The Year of the British Home Child, BIFHSGO has assembled a collection of stories prepared by the researchers about the lives of some of these these children — their ancestors — that demonstrate the strength of character, sense of purpose and good humour that enabled them to overcome adversity and contribute a positive and lasting legacy to their new country.

BOOK - Derry-Londonderry: Gateway to a New World. The Story of Emigration from the Foyle by Sail and Steam
By Brian Mitchell
Published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 2014
Anyone who has an ancestor known to have sailed from Derry will appreciate having a copy of this book. This book, or booklet, by genealogist and Irish emigration expert Brian Mitchell recounts the history of departures from the port of Derry-Londonderry from the late 17th century to the year 1939, when the last transatlantic steamer sailed from the port. The emigration trade established Derry as one of the chief Irish ports for the transatlantic trade in the 18th century. For example, in 1771 the American colonies took more linen cloth and provisions from Derry than Britain did, and thirty percent of Ulster-Scots, around 75,000 people, emigrated through Derry to North America prior to 1776. By the 1850s two local companies, J. & J. Cooke and William McCorkell & Co., dominated transatlantic trade from Derry, building up sizeable shipping fleets. ISBN 978-0806356-91-4 More information
NOVEL - The Scotch-Irish, A Social History [Scotland, Ireland, United States]
By James G. Leyburn
Originally published by the University of North Carolina Press, 1962
This edition published by University of North Carolina Press, 1989 [reprinted recently]
Dispelling much of what he terms the 'mythology' of the Scotch-Irish, James Leyburn provides an absorbing account of their heritage. He discusses their life in Scotland, when the essentials of their character and culture were shaped; their removal to Northern Ireland and the action of their residence in that region upon their outlook on life; and their successive migrations to America, where they settled especially in the back-country of Pennsylvania, Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, and then after the Revolutionary War were in the van of pioneers to the west.

BOOK - Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet
By Chris Paton
Published by Pen and Sword, Barnsley UK, 2013
Ireland has probably experienced more tragedy when it comes to the preservation of resources for family historians than any other region of the British Isles. Many of the nation’s primary records were lost during the civil war in 1922 and through other equally tragic means. But in this new book Chris Paton shows that not only has a great deal of information survived, it is also increasingly being made available online. As well as exploring the various categories of records that the family historian can turn to, Chris Paton illustrates their use with fascinating case studies. He fully explores the online records available from both the north and the south from the earliest times to the present day. Many overseas collections are also included, and he looks at social networking in an Irish context where many exciting projects are currently underway.

BOOK - The Famine Ships, The Irish Exodus to America
By Edward Laxton
Published by Henry Holt,New York, 1998
Often through the words of the passengers themselves, this book documents the frequently tragic story of the mass of people forced to emigrate from Ireland during the potato famine of 1846-1851. The famine was the defining event in modern Irish history; more than a million people died of starvation and disease and another million left their homeland, traveling from all parts of Ireland to board ships bound for the United States and Canada. Sailing under conditions that were rarely monitored, many were denied the food and water promised with the price of their ticket; many succumbed to disease; and those who survived faced a bittersweet aftermath as unwelcome immigrants in America. The Famine Sbips tells a story of courage and determination that is an incredible chapter in North American immigrant history and a crucial moment in the Irish-American experience.

BOOK - Merchants in Plenty: Joseph Smyth's Belfast Directories of 1807 and 1808
With an Historical Introduction and Bibliography of Belfast Directories to 1900 by J. R. R. Adams
By Joseph Smyth and J. R. R. Adams.
The directories here reprinted, from unique copies in the Linen Hall Library, vividly recreate this Belfast of cotton mills and learned societies, sail makers and booksellers. It will be of interest both to genealogists and to those who care for the history of Belfast. The Belfast of the first decade of the nineteenth century was a bustling and growing town of some 22,000 inhabitants. It was dominated by the cotton industry and the linen trade. The foundations of such potentially important enterprises as engineering and shipbuilding were being laid. Yet this was still a period when a trip to Dublin took twenty-one hours by coach (with a double guard for extra security) and when the inhabitants were ferried round the town by sedan chair.

BOOK - Flight From Famine, The Coming Of The Irish To Canada
By Donald MacKay
One of Canada's founding peoples, the Irish arrived in the Newfoundland fishing stations as early as the seventeenth century. By the eighteenth century they were establishing farms and settlements from Nova Scotia to the Great Lakes. Then, in the 1840s, came the failures of Ireland's potato crop, which people in the west of Ireland had depended on for survival. The famine survivors who helped build Canada in the years that followed Black '47 provide a testament to courage, resilience, and perseverance. By the time of Confederation, the Irish population of Canada was second only to the French, and four million Canadians can claim proud Irish descent.
