1901 and 1911 Irish Census digitisation project

Visit Us: Opening hours and document ordering times:

"The National Archives of Ireland has arranged for the digitisation, indexing and contextualisation 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.

Forristal family census return for 1911: " of Nottingham Street in Dublin city Census 1911, Dublin Return 39/64/27",

click the above link to see the household return for the Forristal family of Nottingham Street in Dublin city - please double click to enlarge and view the caption.
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. We had hoped to launch earlier, but rapidly changing technology has meant that we are revising the architecture of the site, and this will lead to a small delay."
