Tithes Come Online!

     I'm very excited this morning, the National Archives of Ireland has put the Tithe Applotments online! Along with Soldier's Wills and the censuses of 1901 and 1911.  Well, not so excited about the censuses, they were already available, but the Tithes are a really big deal.  Given the paucity of Irish records from the early part of the 19th century, they are a great asset.  A description of the tithes can be found here:
     I was disappointed to find the Civil Parish of Graney in Kildare, home to the McGarrs, has somehow been omitted, but I've dashed off a note to the Archives and I'm hoping that will be remedied.  Good luck searching.
