Digitisation of North Tipperary Revision Books, 1902-17, completes

A third and final instalment of newly digitised material completes Tipperaries Studies online collection of Cancelled/Revision Books from North Tipperary County Council.

The digitisation project has seen 197 of these Valuation Books scanned to a high-quality and made available to download or view at Tipperary Libraries Digital Archive at The collection covers 76 District Electoral Divisions and spans 1902 – 1917, across just under 13,000 pages.

The books record the names of people who owned land and buildings across the county, as well as the names of tenants who were examined for valuation (tax).

Details of changes to tenancy / land ownership during these years are made in different coloured ink, with the year of change also noted in most instances. When the person liable for valuation moves away or dies, the next head of household is recorded, making these books a rich source of genealogical information.

This new collection also helps to bridge the time frame between census years 1901 to 1911 and 1911 to 1926.
