Title: Census Returns for Ireland
Snippet: March is the month of green: spring grass, shamrocks and leprechaun hats. It’s the time to drink odd-coloured beer, listen to The Irish Rovers and appreciate the Irish influences in Canada. For many it’s a time to rediscover their Irish roots and look for information on ancestors living in the home country.
The 1901 and 1911 Ireland Census can help do that. They’re available online for free.
National Archives of Ireland holds the household returns and ancillary records for the 1901 and 1911 Census of Ireland. The online database is the result of a research partnership between the archives and Library and Archives Canada.
