County Longford Residents Prior to the Famine: A Transcription and Complete
Index of the Tithe Applotment Books of County Longford, Ireland (1823 -
1835) by Guy A. Rymsza allows millions of people of Irish descent around the
world to break through their "brick wall" for the first time. It is the
first comprehensive analysis of the Tithe Applotment Books available for any
county in Ireland, complete with maps of each civil parish and its
townlands, microfilm reel directory, and bibliography. Beautifully
presented and thoroughly researched, this index of a vital pre-Famine Irish
census substitute has been hailed by Ireland's foremost genealogist John
Grenham, recommended for all Irish genealogy collections, and called "a
model for all future work on the Tithe Books ... and indeed for any other
genealogical product of a similar nature." Featured in Heritage Quest
Magazine, Irish Roots, and Family Chronicle, Rymsza's 439-page hardbound
volume (US$49.95), CD-ROM (US$39.95) and economical digital download
editions are available from Dome Shadow Press. Visit our web site for
