OK - you've convinced me to ante up. Anyway, I imagine that many folks will
already own or have made use of this index and consequently, the demand will
I own a copy an Index of People and Places for the Ordinance Survey Memoirs
of Ireland. This index is a pointer to the forty-volume Memoirs of Ireland
series. It lists: all drawings reproduced from the original OS Memoirs
manuscripts; all maps of towns etc. reproduced from the original OS maps,
1830s; the parishes and volumes in which they occur; the Memoir writers and
each parish for which they wrote an account; and, the main index comprising
place names and personal names. It is said to contain 73, 000 records.
The index helps locate which Memoirs volume may be of interest but folks
will need to refer to the actual Memoirs for information and I don't own
many of them. There are so many names that it will be a chore to reproduce
general searches. For example, there are about 85 references to Andersons
by my count. That means the more specific people can be the easier it will
be on me. But if there is interest, I will give it a shot.
Based on the actual Memoirs for parts of Co. Tyrone, which I do own, the
Memoirs themselves are useful for their descriptions of places and parishes
as they were found in the 1830s and mention of actual people is mostly
incidental and not of much use to genealogists. But I found them very
useful in giving me a picture of the locations that my Hoods came from.
