Knowing the Townland is just the beginning...

Ready to bring your ancestors to life?

One of the most valuable sets of Irish genealogical information has just come online! The collection of Irish Valuation Office books has been digitized and made available on findmypast and the Irish National Archives.  This site serves to help make sense of them.

If you know your ancestor's name, the size of his holding, and the name of his townland, use the FIELD BOOK TRANSLATOR and HOUSE BOOK TRANSLATOR to unlock previously unattainable details about your ancestor's life on the farm.
