Hi Folks,

You will probably all be aware that the LDS aare not going to be sending
out any more microfilms to their Family History Centres as of the end of
this month.  They say that all their records will soon be digitised so the
microfilms are redundant.  I doubt this is precisely true and we will not
be looking at the Tithe Applotment Books online any time soon, or indeed
many other records currently available on microfilm.  Luckily, some of the
most useful documents for County Tyrone research are already held in
microfilm format in Derry Family History Centre.

These are the films that I have paid to be held permanently at the Family
History Centre in Derry. The Abercorn Papers are a detailed set of land and
rent records dating back beyond the Griffiths Valuation and the Tithe
Applotment Books well back into the 18thCentury. As such, they are
invaluable to genealogists. As well as names and maps, they sometimes
contain margin notes written by Abercorn’s agents which are of immense
genealogical value such as how people are related to each other.


Lord Abercorn held land in both Donegal and Tyrone. I am sure that in the
past, the FHS website included the names of townlands covered by each
microfilm but this is certainly not the case now. This means one has to
make do with the descriptions below which are based on manors. There is no
easy reference source to indicate which townlands are in which manors that
I know of at this time.
