Drumlomman Census 1821 

Drumlomman Parish census transcription and analysis was completed by the late Patricia Gilligan for the Certificate in Genealogy Course UCD. Patricia’s wish was to make the completed work widely available and asked the GSI to publish it. Regrettably the GSI was unable to publish it before her untimely death but is now delighted to make this very valuable study available to all researching family history in Ireland.We have two versions of the Drumlomman Parish census. The version with hyperlinks has more functionality, but may be rejected by your system if you have tight security settings.

The Genealogical Society of Ireland obtained, some years ago, a collection of obituaries of Irish people who had died mainly in Canada with some in the USA and New Zealand.The collection consisted mainly of
newspaper cuttings and also a few transcriptions of obituaries and gravestones. The cuttings, in most cases, did not include the name of the newspaper or date of publication.This is an index to the obituaries. Images of the newspaper cuttings with be added later. Click here for access Obituaries
