The purpose of the Ordnance Survey of Ireland was to map the whole
country. Each map was to have been accompanied by memoirs for every civil parish,
but this was impractical and the idea was abandoned. Data was gathered for nineteen
of Ireland's thirty-two counties, with the memoirs of Antrim and Londonderry
the only ones with lists of emigrants.
These extracted lists identify the emigrant's destination and his place of origin in Ireland.
The age, town and address, year of emigration, and religious denomination are
given for each emigrant.
The notebooks in which the information was recorded
are now in the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin. The book Irish Emigration Lists,
1833-1839, Lists of Emigrants Extracted from the Ordnance Survey Memoirs for
Counties Londonderry and Antrim by Brian Mitchell is available in
many libraries (In Salt Lake City Library it is 941.6 W2m and is
available in FHL US/CAN Book and FHL BRITISH Book )
or it can be ordered through Amazon.com
for full details on any immigrant found in the index.
