On October 20 I announced on this forum that the 1911 and 1901
Ireland Censuses were already digitized and available on-line at
no charge. The Library and Archives Canada announced that its
partner, the National Archives of Ireland, has launched the next
important phase of an online census research tool for the Irish
counties of Antrim, Kerry, and Down for 1911. The census records
for all counties for 1911 and for 1901 will be made available
online throughout 2009. To visit the Irish Census Online and the
virtual exhibition on life in Ireland in 1911, please, go to:
www.census.nationalarchives.ie (in English only). While we may
not think many Jewish ancestors came >from Ireland, remember some
may have stopped in Ireland on their route to Canada or the United
States. Therefore it is worth checking the database.
Thank you to Gordon Watts of Census Canada for announcing this update.
