Image Browse & Search Tools

Use the Census Image browse tool to locate certain missing pages for the 1901 and 1911 census on the NAI website.  See the article for notes on how to use the tool, includes a link to John Grenham’s blog post from March 2017 for details on using this technique to try to locate unlinked images.


Use the GRO Image Browse Tool to locate missing or incorrectly linked register Birth, Marriage or Death images on the IrishGenealogy website. See also a step-by-step example.


The Census location search tool allows a search of the 1901 and 1911 census by street or townland, without the showing large lists of occupants – making it easier to find locations by name.

e.g enter Sack*v* in the search box and click search – just 25 results are shown.
A similar search on the NAI website just for 1911 shows over 1,200 results.  Some of the placename spellings have been corrected.  The default search is by wildcard, with optional Soundex search, an Electoral District (DED) wildcard filter is available.

Results can be filtered by year and/or county.

To narrow by street / townland type or qualifier (e.g. Lane, Street, Upper, Lower, Great, North etc) use the ‘additional’ field.

Notes on using the Tithe Location Database and Browse Tool, see also article on Misclassified locations in the online Tithe Applotment transcripts on the NAI and FamilySearch websites.
