Ireland's Duchas Schools Collection

From 1937-1939, over 50,000 schoolchildren from 5,000 schools in the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland were given notebooks by the Irish Folklore Commission and asked to record stories from their parents, grandparents and older community members. They captured wonderful local anecdotes on the topics of folklore, customs, stories, poems, superstitions, food, place names, graveyards, and much more. Some teachers also participated, collecting their own narratives from resident sages. Approximately 740,000 pages were filled with stories.

Irish Emigrant Database

Starting in 2001 the JFK Trust began to compile a most comprehensive database of Irish emigration to the United States, in conjunction with the Balch Institute in Philadelphia, the Ellis Island Restoration Commission in New York and the Battery Conservancy in New York.

This database is compiled directly from the original Ship’s Passenger Manifests. It records Irish, English, Scottish, and Welsh immigrants arriving at the main US ports.

For the port of New York, the database covers the years between 1846 and 1890. For Boston, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Philadelphia the database covers only the famine years between 1846 and 1851.

Access to the database is free through this website. Printouts are available for a small fee.
