Tips for finding your ancestors in Ireland

According to information sent to the Wilson County News by Frank O’Donovan in County Cork, Ireland, people researching their Irish ancestors may hit a snag, due to spelling changes in the District Electoral Division (DED) names and names provided in the country’s census between 1901 and 1911.

Also there are variations in the spelling of Townland names between the 1901 and 1911 Census data. A county has a number of DEDs, and a DED has a number of Townlands or Streets.

The new section on the website, www.BMDnotices.com facilitates comparing DED names between 1901 and 1911 for each county in Ireland and then viewing the Townland names for that selected DED. This is hoped to facilitate searches and be of particular benefit to those doing family history, ancestry, or genealogy research.

Alternatively, you may select a county and then click to view all the Townlands in that county (DED names also displayed). So this section called “Census” on the website www.BMDnotices.com will hopefully assist people. Access is free and does not require any login or other sign-up to use the site.
