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

ATLAS on CD - Memorial Atlas of Ireland, Showing Provinces, Counties, Baronies, Parishes, Etc [1901]
Originally published by L. J. Richards, Philadelphia, 1901
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Milton 2011 (on CD)

The maps that are included in this atlas are of great value to those researching families or history in Ireland. Being printed in 1901 the atlas illustrates Ireland as it was known at the time, and for many decades prior, including defining the boundaries of provinces, counties, baronies, and parishes and identifying villages, towns, cities and landmarks. The "Combined Geographical Directory and Classified Index" lists all known places and directs the reader to the map that the place appears on, and the co-ordinates of the place on the map. More than just the names of municipalities, the index lists castles, churches, cottages, courts, houses, islands, junctions, lakes, baronies, heads (as in a place), mountains, parishes, points, rocks (as in a place), rivers, schools, and stations. This extensive index is organized alphabetically, is 10 columns wide and 21 pages long. Each page is 13 X 19". All that to say that it is hard to imagine that any place went un-indexed.

BOOK - The Scotch-Irish. Two Volumes in One
By Charles A. Hanna. This is the basic sourcebook on the Scotch-Irish in North America, a massive compilation of source records pertaining to the Scots who settled in the north of Ireland and their descendants in North America. The Scotch-Irish left Ulster as a result of neo-mercantilist British economic policy in the region, requirements that they pay 10% of their income to the Anglican Church, ongoing friction with their Catholic Irish neighbors, and greater economic opportunity in the New World.

image of actual cover to be added 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 - Your Irish Ancestors, A Guide For Family Historians
By Ian Maxwell
Aimed primarily at the family and social historian, Ian Maxwell's highly readable guide introduces researchers to the wealth of material available in archives throughout Ireland. Many records, like the early twentieth century census returns and school registers will be familiar to researchers, but others have been traditionally overlooked by all but the most experienced genealogists. Each chapter takes the form of a detailed social history showing how the lives of our ancestors changed over the centuries and how this is reflected in the records that have survived, and it is in this broad historical approach that Ian Maxwell's work stands out from other guides to Irish genealogy.

BOOK - Ordnance Survey Memoirs of Ireland, 1830-1839
Series includes infomation for the Irish counties of Antrim, Armagh, Donegal, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, Tyrone, South Ulster, Cavan, Leitrim, Louth, Monaghan & Sligo - 40 volumes plus Index
In the 1830s a series of parish accounts was commissioned to accompany the new Ordnance Survey maps. These became known as the Memoirs. Only the northern part of Ireland was covered before the scheme was dropped. More than 150 years later, the Institute of Irish Studies, the Queen's University of Belfast, in association with the Royal Irish Academy, published the Memoirs in full. The 40 volumes and supporting index volume (Index volume is available at the end of the following list of volumes) act as a nineteenth-century Domesday book, and are essential to the understanding of the cultural heritage of these Irish communities. The Memoirs record landscape, buildings and antiquities, land-holdings and population, and employment and livelihood of the parishes. This series is presented in an attractive softcover edition, illustrated with drawings from the parish Memoirs and maps from the original Ordnance Survey.

    BOOK - Ordnance Survey Memoirs of Ireland Volume 37: Parishes of County Antrim XIV 1832, 1839-40, Parish Carrickfergus
    Volume 37 contains the Memoir for the historic town and port of Carrickfergus, which is described in incredible detail, even for this survey. In fact, more was written about this parish than any other part of the country, due in part to its unique position on the shore of Belfast Lough and its role in the unfolding history of the country. A portrait is painted of a vibrant commercial and shipping centre, dominated by the Norman castle and harbour, with its array of town houses, and a wide range of mills, public buildings and gentlemen's seats, though the survival of numerous remians of antiquity attests to its being inhabited from earliest times. Social life is particularly well recorded, with extensive accounts of occupations of the people and the complex political and social structures of the town, in which the Chichester family were still prominent; and in such an advanced area considerable effort was devoted to education, as seen through the large number of public and private schools, not only for children of both sexes but for prisoners. Indeed, the presence of the county gaol provides access to fascinating prison records of over 800 offenders, with their sentences. In its entirety, this Memoir provides an unrivalled insight into life in this parish over one hundred and fifty years ago. The parish covered by this Memoir is Carrickfergus. 208 pages; published 1996; 24 x 17cm; paperback; ISBN 085389 562 7
