Mary Robinson, the First Female President of Ireland and human rights activist <3! I love her focus on the importance of lifting up women in the international development arena. Makes me proud to be Irish :)
Based on notebooks compiled during the famous Ordnance Survey of Ireland (1835-1846), these lists have been extracted, arranged under parish, and alphabetized, and they identify the emigrant's destination and his place of origin in Ireland--key pieces of information for anyone tracing his Irish ancestry. In addition, the age, town and address, year of emigration, and religious denomination are given for the more than 3,000 emigrants listed.
