It’s always great to hear of new records being released, more so when it relates to Ireland. The following is a press release from Ireland Genealogy.


Ireland Genealogy is an fascinating new website for anyone doing Irish Family Tree Investigation.

Irish Family History studies are normally quite hard and time-consuming due to the deficiency of information, and much more specifically the possible lack of virtually any comprehensive Census details right before 1901.

That’s why almost any records which contain knowledge extracted from the Irish Census are usually of such vital value in ancestral investigation. One way to obtain info is the Irish Pension Records. Our research workers have spent twenty years copying all these written pension applications (green coloured forms) giving critical info from the 1841 and 1851 census records for all of Ireland.

These pension public records are just available on microfilm and so are kept in the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (in Belfast) and The National Archives. Sometimes they may be tricky to understand and so are in no specific order. In addition the records data held by P.R.O.N.I. are not indexed.

Our own database of those pension applications enables you to lookup this info simply and definately will help you save both cash and time.

All you have to do is enter the surname you’re researching and from the list supplied determine which records you think that relate to your family after which simply click the purchase button.

As mentioned, the pension records were hand written, and perhaps the handwriting is extremely hard to decipher; this along with the reality that a lot of this had been written in pencil which results in a few phrases or letters becoming washed out prior to the copy to microfilm, renders the work of transcribing especially challenging.

Our experts haven’t corrected spelling faults neither have they tried to amend some thing that might not exactly appear sensible. They have copied all of the details included upon every single green application. Whenever they were in any kind of uncertainty if they were reading a really messy or washed out record correctly they have decide to put a question mark. A question mark has also been utilised when it was extremely hard to view.
