1911 Census

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

The entire 1911 census (and most of the 1901 census) of Ireland is now available online for free. It’s a fantastic tool if you want to check your roots, and great to see their returns written in their own writing.
This is my great grandfather, Jerome Murphy’s census return from April 2nd, 1911. He was a shipping clerk for Cunard in Cobh, Co. Cork (then Queenstown). My granny, Marjorie is also there, aged 12. Check out your own at www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search/

Photography

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Not many posts recently, I’ll make up for it now. I’m taking the photos next month at Aidan McCann and Sharon Leddy’s wedding, so we went for a practice run up at Crover the other evening.
