BOOK - Surviving 1851 Census Returns of Ireland
By chief compiler George Bushell and the Irish Special Interest Group,Ottawa Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society
Originally published on CD by Ottawa Branch Ontario Genealogical Society, Ottawa 1999
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2017
As a result of the explosion and fire in the Public Record Office in Dublin on June 30th, 1922, only a relatively small portion of the 1851 Census Returns for Ireland survived. This publication contains transcripts of many of the surviving returns, with a surname index of the contents. The value of the information in these Census Returns cannot be overestimated. It provides marriage, birth, and death information prior to the introduction of civil registration in the mid 1800s. Genealogically, one can locate a family in the late 1700s by townland and parish. Individuals are placed in family groups, and in addition an insight into their economic standing is provided. ISBN 978-1-77240-068-7 (digital edition) More information

BOOK - A Decade of Centenaries: Researching Ireland 1912-1923
By Chris Paton
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2016
This edition printed and bound in Canada by GlobalGenealogy.com Inc.
As the issue of Home Rule reared its head for a third time, its supporters and detractors raised militias to defend their positions, whilst women fought for the vote and labourers fought for better terms from their employers. The First World War would soon dramatically change everything, leading some to see England's difficulty as Ireland's opportunity. When an independent republic was proclaimed through force of arms at Easter 1916, the response would see a brutal guerilla war fought between the British forces the Irish republicans, a partitioned island, and a nation divided. A century on, in this book from Unlock the Past, Northern Irish born family historian Chris Paton will help you to discover whether your ancestors were caught up in the events of that period - whether they were Suffragettes, unionised workers, Ulster or Irish Volunteers, fighting with the British Army and Crown forces, against them as rebels and revolutionaries, and in the ensuing civil war on both sides of the Treaty divide. With improved cataloguing by archives, and better access to the records, both online and offline, a new gateway has been opened into one of the island's most tumultuous, tragic, exciting, and utterly desperate periods of the 20th century. In this book he will show you how to step through it. ISBN ISBN 978125323436 More Information
BOOK - Discover Irish Land Records
By Chris Paton
Published by Unlock the Past, Australia, 2015
The questions that drive us with family history research in Ireland are no different to those asked anywhere else in the world. We need to find the records that tell us who our ancestors were, when and where they lived, and how they related to others. In Ireland, however, many of the records necessary for the task have sadly been lost across time, of were woefully restrictive in how they were created in the first place. Whilst some of the basic vital records do not survive, however, there are plenty of others that will compensate, in this guide book, Northern Ireland born family historian Chris Paton takes a look at the potential to be found within Irish land records. Amongst documents of ownership and tenancy, valuation and tithes records, documents for inheritance, censuses, and many other resources, there are ancestral stories lying dormant and waiting to be found. In this guide, he demonstrates how to find them. ISBN 9781925323245 More Information

BOOK - British and Irish Newspapers
By Chris Paton
Published by Unlock the Past, St Agnes, Australia, 2014
This edition published by Global Genealogy, Milton, 2014
Records of births, marriages and deaths provide a fantastic starting point for identifying our ancestors' names and where they lived, but in terms of trying to understand how those ancestors once lived there is no better resource to plunder than a good newspaper. Over the last two centuries in particular newspapers have recorded the events that have shaped our forebears' lives, and in many cases noted anecdotes, notices and advertisements directly concerning them and their local communities. In this Unlock the Past guide, family historian Chris Paton reviews the availability of newspapers from across the British Isles, describing how to find those that have been digitised and made available online, and explaining how to locate considerably more that have not within the various libraries and archives across Britain and Ireland.

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.
