The range of possible occupations in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was far smaller than it is now, particularly in Ireland, where there was little industrialization. The majority of the population, and particularly of those who emigrated, were either small tenant farmers or laborers.

The 1766 Religious Census Of Ireland

Wednesday, December 29th, 2004

– Sherry Irvine, CGRS, FSA (Scot)
Concerns about the loyalty of Irish Catholics declined through the 1700s; they did not support the Stuart cause led by Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745 and many served loyally in the army during the Seven Years War (French and Indian War), 1756-63. The authorities nevertheless retained an interest in religion and took a long time to relax the Penal Laws. In 1766, the Irish Parliament ordered all Church of Ireland ministers in their respective parishes to prepare a list of householders and their religious affiliation (church of Ireland, Catholic or Presbyterian). In addition the ministers were required to include information about any Catholic priests or friars active in the area.

Genealogy and Family History for Children

Wednesday, December 29th, 2004

Children are naturally curious. In learning about themselves they often ask questions about their parents’ and grandparents’ childhoods. They’re awed and amazed at the differences while at the same time looking for similarities. It may be hard for a child to envision a grandparent as a child, but stories about life “way back when” help a child to connect to the family.
