 County Antrim, Ireland, 1851 Census (Fragments) : Transcription and Index
Masterson continues her assault on Famine-era Irish genealogical sources with this transcription of 1851 census records for County Antrim, and it may be her most ambitious effort to date.
Each person in a household is listed by first and last name, relationship to the head of household, age, marital status and year of marriage, place of birth (if not from County Antrim), literacy, and occupation.
Rounding out this magnificent addition to the published sources of 19th-century Irish genealogy are a number of facsimile reproductions of the census schedules, the compiler's very helpful Introduction and key to abbreviations, a list of all parishes/townlands for which census fragments have survived, and an every-name index keyed to family group numbers.
