Valuation Revisions Lists (FHLC Film Numbers)


Valuation Revisions Lists - FHLC Film Numbers

Griffith's Primary Valuation is found in the FHLC under IRELAND -- Land and Property. The Resource Guide The Ireland Householders Index states: "Griffith's Primary Valuation Lists consist of 22 rolls of microfilm. They are arranged by county and then by union and barony." The referenced 22 rolls of microfilm are #844,975 - #844,996. However, these are only for the Republic of Ireland. There is a separate series of valuation rolls for Northern Ireland. Although Griffith's is arranged by poor law union, the FHL has compiled a list by civil parish on fiche #6026722

Below is a listing of these films, county by county kindly provided by: Jim McNAMARA.

Also note: the Valuation Office will have these records including the northern counties, and they will be the original books in colour, different colours being used for each year's revisions.

One place to find the Electoral Division is the 1901 and 1911 census.  The Electoral Divisions are not referenced in the 'Alphabetical Index to the Townlands and Towns of Ireland'.

Brian Mitchell's 'A New Genealogical Atlas of Ireland' describes the makeup of Poor Law Unions: "The poor law unions of Ireland were subdivided into 829 registration districts and 3,751 district electoral divisions, with parishes and baronies being retained only as a means to make comparisons with records gathered before 1898."
