Dublin: 1911 Census goes online, opening a window on the city, from well-to-do suburbs to tenements

Breaking News

A vivid portrait of life in early 20th Century Ireland emerged yesterday as public access was granted for the first time to digitised records of the 1911 Census.

Using the National Archives website, those living here and the Irish Diaspora, estimated at 70 million people spread across the globe, can search for their ancestors by name.

The first phase of a project to digitise both the 1901 and 1911 census provides access to the records for Dublin 1911, fully indexed by name, allowing users to view the digitised images of the original manuscript household forms.
