The ”Guide to the records deposited in the Public Record Office of Ireland“ by former Assistant Deputy Keeper of the Public Records Herbert Wood is now available to consult on our website.

The National Archives, in partnership with FindMyPast and FamilySearch, has placed online some valuable new genealogical resources which complement the material already on our genealogy website. They are:
Census survivals, 1821-1851; surviving and copy census returns from the pre-famine period, with considerable clusters of records for places like Cavan, Meath and Antrim;
Census Search Forms, 1841-1851; records of searches in the census records pre-1922 to provide proof of age as eligibility for the Old Age Pension, introduced in 1909. These records give names and ages of members of the family in 1841 or 1851, and very often the maiden name of the applicant’s mother.
These collections deal with 600,000 individuals in all, a substantial record of an important period in Irish history while the final tranche of our Soldiers’ Wills covering 1917-1918 are now also available to search online.

The National Archives holds a collection of soldiers’ wills for Irishmen who served in the British army in the 19th and early 20th century. These wills were made by non-commissioned soldiers who were encouraged by the army to make a will before leaving for active service.
There is a small number of wills surviving for Irishmen who served in the British army in the late 19th century and during the South African wars of 1898-1902; however, the vast majority of the collection dates from the First World War. We have digitised all these records and the entire collection is now available free online where researchers will be able to search the collection and view digitised images of the original wills.
