Still searching for 2 irish nurses who were in Manchester in 1951 who had a brother called John Rynne/Rynn who was my father(i was born in 1952)-if I found the nurses(don't know their christian names)I could find my father-there are many Johns-they may have returned to Ireland or gone to USA as he was "Irish/American"-these women if alive are unlikely to go on this site but they could have descendents who do-grateful for any help.My mothers's name was Winnie Williams.

1922 Irish Army Census
http://census.militaryarchives.ie/

Although I have also posted the link on the Military thread, it may be useful to some of you.
It is also useful to refer to the link about why the census was taken

Ashamedly, I dont have a very good knowledge of the political history surrounding partition, but my mum often talked about her family and their involvement. ( Free State)

I had a look at the at my mother's home town and was astounded to find 6 of her relatives in a Garrison of just 16 men, including her grandfather , an uncle and a cousin.
All 16 had occupied the former Barracks as civilian men due to it being a troublesome area
All of them were subsequently signed up to the Irish Army in July 1922 where mum's uncle was the Sergeant who signed their census.

I had no idea that I would find them on this census!

EDIT:
Apologies as I see that Joy posted the same link back in March, and is now fully searchable by name or area

I stumbled across PRONI's online street directories, and thought they might be of interest to others.

In particular, there's a search link at right at:

Update to above 2 posts-I have had 3 replies to my messages within
48 hours...and I haven't had to outlay one cent.The people on the site
are really helpful,it's a great site.Just keep in mind though,it's a fledgling site so not all parishes are up and running yet.You can still join a parish or county and leave a message though.Let's hope more people will get behind it,and join it,as it has potential.

Further to my post above,I have left 3 messages for different parishes and received 1 message within a couple of hours of joining the site.I am rapt.It has already helped me.

I forgot to say a few things-when you join the site,you then join each parish that you're interested in and leave a message if you want to.Members who have already joined,or the person who replies to queries from your parish,can reply if they want to.

They do encourage anyone who is coming over to Ireland to find their roots to donate to the site,but there's no pressure.They aim to use this money to have paid guides to show people around the village
of their ancestors etc. to make it an enjoyable experience.

There is an Irish DNA testing sceme for the typical Irish DNA for each village-they are trying to get people who have lived in a village for generations to get their DNA tested etc.

I like the helpful suggestions that they make to help you find your ancestors.Overall,it's got the potential to be a really great site if people,volunteers and potential users of the site get behind it.
Check it out.

Margot.

Hi Teresa,

Just thought I'd let you know of a new Irish website which I found over
the weekend. It's called "Ireland-Reaching Out," and it's free.It aims to reconnect all the people around the world with their Irish ancestors,and is run mainly by volunteers.It's only been going about 12 months or so,and could potentially be very helpful for people like me who have a few Irish brick walls to break down. You can join the site,and leave a message,and someone will try to answer your query.
Other people can answer your message as well.

If you know the specific village etc.they will try to get in touch with any people of the same name in that village,potentially your cousins.If you don't have specific information someone will reply with helpful links etc.

If you are visiting Ireland you are encouraged to return to your ancestor's birthplace ,where they try to arrange for you to visit the house of your ancestor,see graves,sites of interest etc.and meet up with your modern-day cousins.

This site makes use of local knowledge,which is it's strength,and should be really good if enough volunteers get behind it to make it a useful tool in finding one's Irish roots.Some people have already done this,with great success.


The link to find it is...

What about rootsireland.ie and askaboutireland.ie? The first has heritage centre records for most counties (pay site) and the second has the Griffith's Valuation for free. Keep up the good work! Margo :-)
