Ireland's 1911 and 1901 Census Records

I'm finally getting back into my genealogy research. I've been viewing the 1911 Census records. I really don't get much out of them as I have all of my family information from this time. Both my grandparents are listed. It is kind of neat to view them though.

I'm really looking forward to the 1901 Census records. They are due to be digitized in late 2009 through mid 2010. I cannot wait.

My Finegan's were still in Co. Monaghan at this time and I really don't have much on them. They came to America between 1904 and 1911. So, I have my fingers crossed that once these records are up that I will uncover some more family facts.
