North Tipperary Genealogy Centre
Finding your North Tipperary Roots has never been easier. The North Tipperary Genealogy Centre is located in the Governor’s House (the Old Gaol) in Nenagh and is run under the auspices of Tipperary County Council. The Genealogy Centre provides a genealogical research service for people whose ancestors originated in North Tipperary. Research is undertaken by the Genealogist on a small fee basis.

Nora O’Meara, M.A. is a professional Genealogist and has managed the Genealogy Centre for the last 28 years. Thousands of people have engaged the Genealogy Centre to undertake research and locate their living relatives and identify their old homestead. There is a similar Genealogy Centre in almost every County in Ireland. 

Sources used for research are the Church Baptismal and Marriage parish records, Civil births, deaths and marriages, Land Records i.e. The Griffiths/Primary Valuation Lists, The Tithe Applotment Books, the 1901 and 1911 Census, Gravestone Inscriptions and several other specific genealogical sources pertaining to a particular County, parish maps and local contact/knowledge.

Online Service
Those wishing to undertake their own research can now access a central website dedicated to providing a one stop shop for all the available Irish genealogical records on the island of Ireland at www.rootsireland.ie This Online Service is a tool which provides the Irish Diaspora worldwide access to their Irish origins. The website currently contains over 20 million birth, baptismal, marriage, death, census and gravestone records from the 1600s to the 1900s. 

In every conceivable manner, the family is a link to our past and a bridge to our future. 

What you need to trace your Irish Ancestors
Locating the County of origin is the central and essential question to tracing any emigrant line. Start looking where they ended their lives and move backwards to the port of arrival or where they married. Check out obituaries, death notices and gravestones, census records, naturalization papers, military/employment records.

Once you have the name of the person and approximate date of birth and county of origin you can then contact the particular Genealogy Centre or go online and commence the process.
