Griffith’s Valuation for whole of Ireland now available on AskAboutIreland

A free and fully searchable version of Griffith’s Valuation for the whole of Ireland is now available online at the public libraries’ website Griffith’s Valuation was the first systematic valuation of all property holdings and is the most important surviving genealogical source from the mid-nineteenth century. Search by family name or by place-name to find specific information. Each record links to the original page of the Valuation book and the accompanying map marked with the individual land plots.

Parish and surname indexes to the Clare entries have been available on Clare County Library's site for many years, and a list of surnames and surname frequency tables were added more recently.
