|Two great resources for finding ancestors in Ireland are:
The Tithe Applotment Lists: Those on land expected to pay tithes to support the Church of Ireland. The lists only include names and parishes. The dates for the counties are as follows:

Offaly (King's) 1823-38
|Griffiths Valuation, a property assessment of all properties in Ireland, took place during the years 1848 to 1864. They began in the south of Ireland and ended in Ulster. It lists the lessors (not the same as the owner) and lessees of all property in the country. It is the primary 19th Irish reference in which the poor are likely to be found. FHC Film # 0844991. Griffith's was actually taken in the counties as follows:|
| Antrim 1861-62
Dublin City 1851
Laois (Queen's) 1858-60
Offaly 1864 (King's)
