This 106-page publication opens with a brief history of the making of the city, and includes maps illustrating the growth, and showing changes to the municipal boundary, and the townlands that lie within it.
It includes a extensive range of records under main headings, such as Land Records, Census Records and Substitutes, Education, Graveyards, and many more. Dozens of lesser-known records have been sourced and all have details of where they can be accessed.
The section on Church Records describes any changes to a church’s location and/or amalgamation. The surviving records are listed, showing the years covered and where they are held. Web links are noted where applicable, and our own transcribed records are also included.
The book is illustrated with photographs old and new and rounds off with source books and websites not previously mentioned. Contact details for the main record repositories are also listed.
