Subject: [S-I] New CD Rom Londonderry databases
Date: Mon, 21 Jun 2010 18:33:00 +0000
Billy Macafee's new CD Rom of databases comed highly recommended for those interested in the period 1600-1800 County Londonderry.
A key feature of the CD is the inclusion of databases containing names and places within the county covering the years 1622 to 1859. These are available in both Excel and PDF formats. These include the standard census substitutes – the 1630 Muster Rolls, the 1663 Hearth Money Rolls, the 1740 Protestant Householders’ Returns, the 1766 Religious Census and the 1796 Flaxgrowers’ List. Two important databases on the CD are the 1831 Census Returns [unique to the county] which list virtually all heads of households within the county at that time and the 1858/59 Griffith’s [Tenement] Valuation which lists the occupiers of houses and holdings in the county at that time.
As well as databases containing lists of names and places there are a number of databases relating to sources and administrative divisions within the county. Another database which should prove useful when looking for estate records is Landlords of Individual Townland in the County, c.1859 and 1600s.
