Some of the lists found on my County Louth web site are quite obscure, but give an indication of the alternative sources - those all-important census substitutes - that are available for further family research in this small, but important, County.

 

There are nearly two hundred pages of information (containing in excess of  77,000 County Louth-related names) to be found here, so you may prefer to use the Site Map link when browsing.

 

For your further convenience, there is a commercial search engine for this web site at the bottom of this page.
