Prentices in the 1911 Dublin, Ireland, census

Do you have the new PRENTICE eBook?
Prentices in the 1911 Dublin, Ireland, Census
By Linus Joseph Dewald Jr., Editor
Spring 2008 and Revised 6 Jan 2008

Our attention has been directed to the 1911 census for Dublin, Ireland which was released by the National Archives of Ireland and which can now be found on the internet at Census National Archives .

You can search for Prentices (or any other surname) by first/last name, approximate age (within 5 years), gender, and DED (District Electoral Division). Results are sorted by surname by default, and are in tables which include name, townland/street, age, sex, and DED. Click on a name and you'll get the information on the entire family living at that address. On the family page you'll also find links to census images (which are in PDF format, be warned) that include the basic household form but also forms for buildings, outbuildings, and other forms unique to households or situations.

You can also BROWSE the census, which is pretty interesting! You can browse by DED, which will take you through the townlands/streets of Dublin and list houses and families as well as significant buildings in the area. To get a sense of what the city was like in 1911, the site also has several articles and photographs covering a variety of topics including religion, transportation, poverty, and law.

Be sure to check out the future plans page, which shows the order in which census records will be made available. The records for 1911 are being digitized first, which began in December 2007. I'm not sure how long it takes to do one county so I don't know when the next ones will be available. The 1905 census will follow.

If you have any information about the ancestry and/and descendants of the Prentices mentioned in 1911 Dublin census, please send your information to us at the Prentice Newsletter. Be sure to give the full title and date of this article in the Subject line of the email.
