The Louth Militia

 01 September 2015: Muster Roll of sixty names added of the Men and Officers of The Louth Militia Light Company 1797 as well as some 300 names in the List of the Louth Militia Officers and Men 1793 (when the Louth Militia was formed). As of 19th Dec 2015 are transcribed, over twelve pages, the Louth Militia Muster Rolls for the Year of Revolution 1798. The first Muster covers the six months from October 1797 to March 1798.  For the remainder of '98 the Musters were recorded monthly. 30/12/2015: I have updated the web site with a final Louth Militia Muster Roll covering the period January to March 1799.

Louth and WWI

1914-1918 - The Returned Army: County Louth Servicemen in the Great War by Donal Hall. This is an on-going list, now with some 1,600 names, that complements his book on County Louth war dead (more than 800 recorded). The list has been updated with the names of 60 men from the Australian Forces, all with County Louth connections. The commitment of men and women to the war effort was immense.

With so much genealogical information lost in the Public Records Office fire of 1922, census substitutes can be vital in genealogical research. Some of the lists found on my County Louth web site are quite obscure, but give an indication of the alternative sources - those all-important census substitutes - often essential when researching your family history. There are nearly two hundred and fifty pages of information, containing around 100k County Louth-related names, to be found here, so you may prefer to use the Site Map when browsing or the new Google search engine at the top of the page.
