New digital archive for County Tipperary launched

Tipperary Libraries Local Studies department has pressed the live switch on a brand new online home for its digital archive where anyone with family connections or local history interest to the county can search and view 29 collections of goodies.

And when I say goodies, I mean goodies!
How about ready access to National School Registers and Roll Books. Or the Poor Law Union (PLU) Burial Rate Books for Nenagh PLU? Or the 90 record sets of transcribed gravestone inscriptions containing work by Ormond Historical Society, Killencule Historical Society, Clonmel Historical Society and Mr Con Ryan?

Or the Thurles Workhouse Registers? Or records from the Landed Estate Court containing maps and details of tenancies in several swathes of land across the county? That's before you even start thinking of digging into the photo collections and sport ephemera!

If you have ancestors from County Tipperary, you must check out this digital collection (click image). Even if you're checked it out before, dip in again! It's completely free and you can download the files in pdf format direct to your devlice.
