New Irish Records - Ship Passenger Lists!

Those of us searching Irish Genealogy wait with baited breath for new records. Hopefully this recent release will give us our research fix. 

The Irish Family History Foundation has just announced the release a new source of records.  The Centre of Migration Studies, Omagh, Co.Tyrone has provided over 227,000 names of ship passengers.

The passengers are mostly of Irish Origin, on ships travelling from Irish and British ports to ports in the United States and Canada,  from 1791 to 1897.

You can login here  http://cms.rootsireland.ie  This is pay-per-view subscription site. (which in my opinion can be quite frustrating)


Also available

The 1901 Census of County Leitrim is now also available, adding an additional 69,000 records to the online database. 


The records have been  inputted by staff at Leitrim Genealogy Centre.Go to http://leitrim.rootsireland.ie to search. Again this is through the Irish Family History Foundation, a pay-per-view site. 

Happy Hunting!

  1. Thanks for this post - I want to see if I can find my ancestor's siblings who went to the US.

    I love your posts so I nominated you as one of my 15 favourite blogs. You can see more about it at my blog Family history across the seas. However as the "requirement" to nominate another 15 bloggers is onerous I don't expect you will necessarily want to do this. I just wanted to highlight your great site . Pauleen
