Creating Geographic Categories for County Antrim
Is it a parish, barony, town or townland? Need help categorising place names? Logain.ie, the Irish Ordinance Survey website should be able to assist!
Wherever possible, please create categories to the lowest or most specific level possible: in particular, be aware that townlands are smaller units of land than towns and are not the same thing. Similarly, Roman Catholic Parishes, Church of Ireland parishes and Civil Parishes are all different too - try to ensure that if you are creating new categories for these places that you categorise as accurately as possible.
- Location categories should styled as follows:
Level Style Town nameOfTown, County Antrim You may use nameOfTown Town, County Antrim if disambiguation is needed. Please discuss first. Townland name OfTownland Townland, nameOfCivilParish Parish, County Antrim The only permitted variation from this is where the Barony is required because two or more townlands of the same name exist in the same parish in the same county. In this case the format is:
name OfTownland Townland, nameOfCivilParish Parish, nameOfBarony, County Antrim
Civil Parish nameOfCivilParish Parish, County Antrim The only permitted variation from this is where the Barony is required because two or more parishes of the same name exist in the same county. In this case the format is:
nameOfCivilParish Parish, nameOfBarony, County Antrim
The goal of this project is to connect and share information our ancestors and families that resided in County Antrim, Ireland
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Kim Myers.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- Add the baronies, parishes, and townlands of County Antrim
- Provide maps or links to maps of the area over historical time
- Add persons living in the various townlands at the beginning of the 19th century.
