Presented by Miles Davenport

When: Cancelled

Level II: Intermediate

Workshop Summary:

This workshop provides a comprehensive look at Irish land and property records that can be
used as a substitute for missing or lost 19 th Century Irish records and those of earlier eras. The
workshop will demonstrate how to utilize records such as Griffith’s Valuation, Tithe Applotment
Books, and numerous other online and offline record sources to uncover relevant genealogical
information in Ireland. The primary focus of the workshop will be on the records generated by
Richard Griffith’s extensive valuation activities that led to and followed his Primary Valuation of
Ireland published between 1847 and 1864. An actual case study will illustrate how to locate and
interpret these land and other property records and use them to determine multi-generational
family relationships.  *Class may be a prerecording presented by one of our Librarians
