IRISH FAMILY HISTORY DAY



To add to IRISH FAMILY HISTORY DAY, these are just some of the records added today from FMP.AU...








I would love to hear if you discover some new and interesting facts. Note, I have no affiliation with Find My Past and it is a paid site.

THE PARISHES OF COUNTY CLARE



I have often mentioned the always interesting Co Clare Library blog... this is yet another good reason to follow it...


The Parishes of County Clare








(c) Clare Library


Most of the genealogical and geographical information on Clare County Library’s website is arranged by civil parish. The reason for this is that between the 17th and early 20th centuries, the civil parish was the territorial unit used by government for its land surveys and censuses. Click here for a list of the civil parishes of Clare, and they are mapped here... They are divided into townlands, the smallest territorial unit, and are arranged into Baronies, the largest unit in the county system. Civil parishes are no longer in use for administrative purposes.

Apologies to those who received what should have been the draft post earlier...
