Book Description

January 1, 1998 0806311525 978-0806311524
Genealogical research in Ireland depends on a knowledge of geography, for all major Irish record sources are linked to at least one of the six administrative divisions mapped in this work: counties, baronies, civil parishes, dioceses, poor law unions, and probate districts. The most important record source, the mid-19th century survey of Ireland known as Griffith's Valuation, is organized by poor law union, parish, barony, and county. But wills probated before 1858 are organized by diocese, and after 1858 by probate district; while parish registers, marriage license bonds, and census records all have an organization linked to one or another of these administrative divisions. To help in identifying the precise location of these divisions, and thus their jurisdiction, Mr. Mitchell has drawn at least three maps for every county. The first county map depicts the civil parishes; the second shows the baronies and dioceses of that county; the third illustrates the poor law unions and the parishes included in the probate districts serving that county. Three maps of Ireland are also included to show the area covered by each county, diocese, and probate district. In addition the Introduction covers the link between the major administrative divisions and the major record sources of Ireland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now in a new and expanded second edition February 5, 2002
Now in a new and expanded second edition, A New Genealogical Atlas Of Ireland by genealogical expert Brian Mitchell has added maps detailing the location of Roman Catholic parishes in all thirty-two counties of Ireland, and Presbyterian congregations in the nine counties of Northern Ireland. A complete geographical picture of the three major religious dominations in Ireland during the middle years of the 19th century is another newly added feature. An invaluable reference and guide for doing genealogical research for an Irish ancestry, A New Genealogical Atlas Of Ireland continues to be an indispensable, core addition to personal, professional, and genealogical society reference collections.

4.0 out of 5 stars Requires Companion Book January 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Interesting for genealogy but requires a companion book to be useful. Maps are basic outlines of borders of various subdivisions of Ireland.
