1841 Census look up Roscommon please
« on: Saturday 12 November 05 14:50 GMT (UK) »
Would be very grateful if SKS could trace the following family in the 1841 census.  The ages quoted were taken from a passenger list September, 1847.
when the family emigrated to America so they would obviously have been about 6 years younger at census time.  Thanks for your time.  Ljay

The 1841 census was largely destroyed in the Public Record Office fire of 1922, the earliest in existence for Co. Roscommon is 1901. There may be a record of James Hanly in the earlier Tithe Applotment. You will be aware that the family were victims of the Ballykilcline evictions, there is a Ballykilcline Society which could help.

Hi Coolcam - thanks very much for this.  I have not seen either of these webpages before so will be investigating further.  Best wishes with your research.  Ljay
