Ireland census to come online

The National Archives of Ireland has arranged for the digitisation, indexing andcontextualisation of its most popular records, the census records for 1901 and 1911. The resulting website will contain images of the forms for each household and institution, which will be indexed by name (all names), townland/street, age and sex.

There will also be illustrated information on what life was like in Ireland in the early days of the last century. The site will be free to access, with no charge to use the indexes or view the images.

The first phase of the project, Dublin City and County 1911, is to be launched in Autumn 2007.
