More Cork resources go online

Four more Cork directories have been made available free and online through Cork City Library. They are all from the Slater's Directory series. They comprise the 1846 Cork City and Cobh edition and the 1856, 1870 and 1881 editions for Cork City and County Cork.

The recent additions join an impressive line-up of directories dating from 1787 to 1945.

Meanwhile, Cork City and County Archives (CCCA) has just completed its project to create and make available online full descriptive lists for its Board of Guardians collection. The latter covers all of the county's 14 Poor Law Unions. The lists can be downloaded in pdf format from the CCCA website. Summaries are also now available on the Irish Archives Resource website.
