FINDING YOUR ANCESTORS

When you have asked for a Look-up on the CD-ROM version of the 'Index to Griffiths Valuation 1848-1864', below is the example of information you will receive back:

# Smith, Thomas
      County: Laois/Leix/Queens
      Parish: Ballyadams
      Location: Knock

To find the address of this person you will need to get access to the Valuation Books which are located in Dublin. Most LDS FHC around the World have these records on Microfiche. The search should reveal the Plot Number and a Map Reference where this person lived.  Once you have established the Plot Number you then need to obtain the map of the area.

The Valuation Office in Dublin has the original OS maps with the property identifiers added in ink by Griffith's crew.  Each parcel of land in Griffith's is outlined in darker ink and the identifier (e.g., 2A, 4, 6C, etc.) is hand-written inside the parcel.  Copies of these Maps will cost in the region of about 20 each. You will find a complete price list on Griffith's Web Site.

In the past, map copies made at the Valuation Office were of poor quality.  If you plan to use the map as an illustration in a "family history book" or something, you might want to transfer the Griffith's markings to a clean copy of the old OS map.   The maps (without the Griffith's annotations) should be available at one of the large libraries or archives in the UK.  The Library of Congress in Washington DC and libraries/archives in Canada & Australia have a complete set of the c1840 maps on microfiche.  As I mentioned, these maps do *not* have the Griffith's markings.

For more information go to Griffith's Valuation Office
