Subject: [IRISH-IN-CHICAGO] Irish 1926 Census Returns

Listers,

This was on another list. I thought it important enough to share with all of you.

Council of Irish Genealogical Organisations (CIGO)

Both CIGO & the Genealogical Society of Ireland (GSI) have long called for public access to the Republic's 1926 census returns. This policy is one which CIGO has been actively pursuing over the past few years. GSI has now announced the likely publication of a parliamentary Bill through which it hopes access can be secured to the returns. You might also like to subscribe to CIGO's on-line petition <http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/1926C>; calling for the early release of the 1926 census.

You can read more about this issue here. <http://www.cigo.ie/news.html>;

You don't have to subscribe. You can just sign the petition electronically.

Bill
