Topic Focus- Census Reports

‘whats going on’?

Genealogical Advisory Service at the National Archives of Ireland

Dear Eneclann customer,

Article on online research available free to subscribers

Fiona Fitzsimons, Eneclann’s Research Director wrote an article on ‘Irish family history research online’ for The Septs magazine.  We’re now making this article free to download for our newsletter subscribers as we thought that many of you would find it a useful new reference tool.  What’s more, the article is bang up-to-date, so even the hardened genealogists amongst you might find something new!

To download Fiona’s article you just need to follow the usual ordering process for the Eneclann shop (though without paying anything!) and by entering your name and email address.  We hope you enjoy it – let us know your thoughts on our Facebook page


Topic Focus – Census Reports

This newsletter’s Topic Focus is both that and a special offer in one!  Until Saturday 18th May, all of our Census Reports are half price!

The Census Reports are different from the Census Returns that you can find online at the National Archives of Ireland but they are a brilliant tool for the genealogist or local historian.  They do not list names but can be used for in-depth background of a place or community as they contain a lot of demographic and statistical material.  What’s more, since they span the period from 1851 to 1911 you can trace the changes in an area over time.

You can either buy all the Census Reports for each county on CD , or each year individually by county as a download by visiting your county’s page and clicking the ‘Census Reports’ link at the top.  With the half price discount, some of these downloads are a real bargain! 


What’s going on?

By the time you read this, we’ll probably be in a frenzy of last minute preparations for the National Genealogical Society’s annual conference.    We always really enjoy the NGS conferences, but are especially looking forward to this year’s since it’s being held in Las Vegas!  When we aren’t taking in the sights and sounds of The Strip, you can catch us at the Eneclann table in the LVH-Las Vegas Hotel and Casino from Wednesday 8th to Saturday 11th of May.  Hope to see many of you there!

Ancestral Connections: names, places and spaces is a University College Cork genealogy summer school offering a complete course in the latest Irish genealogy research.  All aspects of the subject are covered by a series of presentations and ‘hands on’ workshops given by a selection of Ireland’s leading genealogical lecturers and experts, including Eneclann’s Brian and Fiona. Ancestral Connections is running from 30th June to 6th July.

Genealogical Advisory Service at the National Archives of Ireland

Just a reminder that you can still avail of the free genealogy advisory service at The National Archives of Ireland from 10am to 1.30pm, Monday to Friday.  Some of the foremost experts on genealogy in Ireland are on-call in the National Archives to answer your family history queries.

The genealogy service marks the successful collaboration of Eneclann and Ancestor Network, in partnership with the NAI, who bring together the talent and skill of some of Ireland best known genealogists.

No booking is required, but access to the genealogist on-duty is on a first come, first served basis.
