Tipperary Studies releases Cashel NS Boy's registers, 1868-1917

Hot on the heels of another wonderful addition to their digital archives (ledgers of a Thurles Watchmaker), Tipperary Studies, the local history department of the county's library service, has uploaded five good quality pdf copies of Cashel National School's boys' registers.

They span 1868 to 1917 and are full of genealogical information. Beyond the basics of name, age and townland of residence of each boy pupil, the registers provide information about the family's religion, father's occupation, when the child joined and left the school, and their examination results across a range of subjects.

The pdf are not small – the smallest is a littly shy of 36Mb – so they take a while to 'unroll' when you download them. Go to https://tippstudiesdigital.ie/items/show/4625 to find out more.
