NAI's census database corrections: progress update

Most readers of Irish Genealogy News will be aware that well-known genealogist John Grenham MAGI has been wading through the backlog of census correction emails submitted by researchers to the National Archives of Ireland (NAI).

John started the task in late summer last year, and, with the half-way point in sight, took a well deserved break yesterday to bring us up to date on how the project is going.

He tells us on his blog that about 60,000 corrections have been made to the NAI's free census database so far (updates go live monthly) and reminds researchers that these corrections are exclusive to that database.

You can read more about the work John has been performing and his personal observations of the task at johngrenham.com.

Keep taking the tablets, John!
