Join professional genealogist Nora O’Meara, who has been managing the services at North Tipperary Genealogy Centre since its inception over 25 years ago, and take a peek into the fascinating history of your very own family.
Over the years, thousands of people have engaged the services at North Tipperary Genealogy to undertake family history research exploring their north Tipperary roots.
Emigration has been a dominating feature of Irish life for almost four centuries and has left an unmistakable legacy. It is estimated that 8m left Ireland between 1800-1921 to settle mainly in Britain, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and Argentina. The Irish diaspora is thus to be found in every corner of the world. The desire to find out where their families originated and to reconnect with the land of their ancestors has led many to seek services such as these, and to an explosion of Irish genealogical research.
The centre has computerised all the main genealogical sources pertaining to north Tipperary. These include church, baptismal, and marriage records of all denominations, civil births, deaths, and marriages, the Tithe Applotment Books (1830s), the Griffith’s/Primary Valuations lists (1850s), the 1901 Census records, and all gravestone inscriptions for north Tipperary (exclusive to the centre). Several other important sources, like the 1650 Civil Survey, 1660 Hearth Money Rolls, and the 1840s Poor Law Rate books, along with street directories, and the Nenagh Guardian births, deaths, and marriages 1838-1864 records, have all been computerised.
