Hello Boyd and all, I cannot stress the value of the Tithe Applotment Books to Irish researchers, but my decade-long project of transcribing every parish in Co. Tyrone has brought zero response and I have often wondered the value of continuing with the project. Some parishes have two surviving books and both warrant transcribing: tithepayers may be recorded in c1825 but gone (generally emigrated) by the late 1830s.
The possibly easiest method to locate the origins of emigrant forebears is to refer to Griffiths Valuation (c1860) http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/ for any concentration of the names/s you are researching and then refer to the relevant tithe applotment books. Am not sure if it will be possible to create an index from my files (formatted in Word), but will be considered. To date, the number of pages compiled amounts to 1,504, and the number of entries recording the names of tithe payers amounts to in excess of 35,000. And the transcribing continues. It is a major project and is not being undertaken in any other county in Northern Ireland. These are VERY important records.

As you say, the TABs are essential for researching the previous generation and the only place to find them for Tyrone is at CTI, where you have transcribed them. And they are essential viewing IF you know which parish to research. However, I am often searching for a family in the 1820s/30s where the only location known is Co Tyrone. This is easy for the GV as the website allows one to search by county but I cannot do that with the CTI database. How hard would it be to merge the TAB data which is currently divided by parish, into a database covering the whole of Tyrone which would then be easily searchable. Think the Hacketts in that email we commented upon yesterday.

Remember that phonetic spelling of family names was most common in Griffiths, so it is useful to consider variations in spelling. The facility to upload data and photographs has been available since 2011 Also, the indexed Tithe Applotment Books of the 1820s and 1830s for Co. Tyrone are essential for researching the previous generation: the most extensive database for all Tyrone parishes is available on the CountyTyroneIreland website http://www.cotyroneireland.com/tithe/titheindex.html I hope that you have found some useful data amongst the many files on CTI.

This time I noticed the option to add information, photos, etc., to the record. Is this new or have I suddenly opened my eyes to something that has been there all along? It's a great idea.
