Hello Michael,

Eighteenth Century Tithe records are extremely rare and at that time were 
recorded as Cess Lists. Referring to William Roulston’s invaluable RESEARCHING 
SCOTS-IRISH ANCESTORS: THE ESSENTIAL GENEALOGICAL GUIDE TO EARLY MODERN ULSTER 
1600-1800 there are none surviving for Tyrone parishes. I have personally 
searched the Cess Lists for Templemore parish (Londonderry City) but they 
reveal very little: name of townland, leaseholder and tithe payable. That is 
all. What parish are you researching?

Regards,
Len Swindley, Melbourne, Australia

Herculean effort for sure! I'm personally looking for pre 1800 TAB's. In tyrone 
co. This week with my wife. Both of our sides are from NI.

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.

Best wishes with your researching,
Len Swindley, Melbourne, Australia

Hi Len,

A small point.

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.

Best wishes,

Boyd

Yes, Kathleen, Askaboutireland   
http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/ is a great website for 
searching for entries contained in the c1860 Griffiths Valuation – both by 
surname AND location. 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. All 
good wishes,
Len Swindley, Melbourne, Australia

Periodically, I go back and check Griffith's again - especially if I find a 
link to a new family. 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.

Here you may search for only a Surname or include other options to search the
