1911 Irish Census update

I've just read an update on the Rootschat forum concerning the 1911 Irish census release online. Apparently there have been serious problems with the level of accuracy in the transcriptions for Donegal, Limerick, Wexford, Cork and Kings County (Offaly), which have resulted in the delay, though these have now been resolved. The new prospective release date for these is May 22nd 2009.

Following this, there will apparently be two further batch releases - one in the summer, one in the winter, just prior to Christmas, completing the full census release.

This is all still subject to confirmation, as there is no word on the NAI site, and equally no word on the 1901 releases which were also promised for this summer.

More news as it comes!
