The Griffith's Valuation, or Primary Valuation of Ireland, was executed
under the direction of Sir Richard Griffith to determine the amount of
tax each person should pay towards the support of the poor within their
poor law union. This involved determining the value of all privately
held lands and buildings in rural as well as urban areas to figure the
rate at which each unit of property could be rented year after year.
The resulting survey was arranged by barony and civil
parish with an index to the townlands appearing in each volume. The
original volumes of the survey are held in the National Archives, Dublin
and Public Record Office, Belfast.

Griffith's Valuation is an invaluable reference for family historians
with ancestors in Ireland. It is a record of extreme importance since
no census material of the nineteenth century has survived. In effect,
Griffith's Valuation can be used as a census substitute for the years
before, during, and after the Great Famine. While it represents an
impressive undertaking in terms of property survey, Griffith's Valuation
is also an important record of valuable social and economic data. For
those seeking information on their Irish ancestors, it provides more
than just names and locations of residences. Griffith's Valuation is,
effectively, the only detailed guide to where in Ireland people lived in
the mid-nineteenth century and what property they possessed. In
addition to providing the name of the householder, Griffith's Valuation
provides a map reference
number to help you identify and perhaps locate property.

Few other records can be used to identify an immigrant ancestor's exact
place of origin, and only Griffith's Valuation links an individual to a
specific townland and civil parish. This informa-tion is of extreme
importance since the first step in Irish genealogical research is to
identify an ancestor's townland and civil parish. This information can
lead you to ecclesiastical parish records of births and marriages.
