What we do

Ireland Project - County Teams
A PDF file giving an introduction to inform you of the role of the county teams, to explain the structure of the teams and to let you know what is expected of you as a member. This PDF is hosted on the Google Drive of David Loring so if you have any problems accessing it please contact him. The PDF is downloadable from the viewer.
Whilst familiarizing ourselves with Styles and Standards and 'standard' Wikitree 'best practice' goals such as merging duplicate profiles, sourcing, cleaning and adding biographies, linking profiles to the wider family tree and general Profile Improvement, as a member of the Leinster Team you will be assisting in helping people locate their ancestors in counties of the Province of Leinster. There are various ways in which we can do this, some through the sub-projects of the Leinster counties and some by providing the framework whereby records are grouped together, categorized, under various aspects such as towns, townlands, parishes, electoral districts and census records etc.
Please remember Communication Before Editing.

Helping as a member

A part of being a member of the Ireland Project and of the Leinster Province Team is giving a little bit of your time if possible to tidying up the profiles we oversee as the team. Some of these profiles such as the Unknown Locations and Unsourced need a bit of TLC from the Team members. In particular those that have been orphaned for what ever reason and no longer have a profile manager to watch over them need our attention. Any little bit of time you can spare will be appreciated you may be assured. Resolving sources for unsourced profiles and determining locations of birth and / or death where such information does not currently exist will benefit the whole WikiTree community.
See the Profiles Needing Work link below in the status section for details of what is needing to be done.
For other Sub-Categories for Leinster see the main County category for each of the Leinster counties. Some examples of the sub-Categories are:
See Ireland Sub-Projects for other Irish projects you might be interested in.
It is highly recommended that you start a One Name Study or more for your surnames. It is a great place to store your research notes, sources such as web sites, books, etc. and a place to connect to other genealogists who are working on that name.

Leinster Province Status Pages

Go to the Parishes of Leinster (Status) page which displays the progress of parish CIB and Space pages and the current version number. This also just happens to be a useful list of every civil parish in Leinster Province.
This free space page show the profiles, by county in Leinster province, that are in need of some TLC from the team. Leinster Profiles Needing Work (Status)

A considerable amount has gone into and is still on going on the determination of the correct townland names and locations and the categorization of these. In order that we present a uniform format for location categories please visit this page for help with creating Geographic Categories for Ireland
Building upon a sound framework of locations we aim to provide as comprehensive as possible a list of resources on the each main County page. Please add any sources for Counties on the main page for the County.

I need help with the Cullen family of Blessington.

They are at the limits of available records but it may be possible to find death or burial records for the parents Michael and Anne, around mid 1800s. Also, the daughters Bridget and Elizabeth, did they marry? Any help appreciated, thank you. Links to the family are under the Blessington category:

Hi Happy New Year,

I've recently completed a comprehensive book on my MORRISSEY family history of 9 ancestors that emigrated from Cloghala Townland, Kilkenny during the great famine in the 1840-50s to Australia. I received assistance with birth, death and marriage information from Kilkenny Archaeological Society. I'm now trying to research back further in time and have been reading papers on the Norman de Marisco family, wiki tree's work on John Morris (c1546-c1620) and the Montmorency Imposture papers, which I think relates to John Morres family or at least Hervey Montmorency from Kilkenny. The Morrissey name does not seem to go back to medieval times (Latin/French) as we know. I don't expect to find any evidence of family members at all or direct links. They may have all emigrated. I'm simply wondering which name / family group, such as those mentioned above, COULD/ MAYBE/POSSIBLY be ancestors. Warm Regards Patrick Morrisey [email address removed] .

And a Happy New Year to you too Patrick.

I rather suspect, in view of the huge amount of research you have done, that you are better qualified than most in this area. You could try asking the question on G2G (Move to G2G). There may be someone out there not on the Kilkenny Team who is a fount of information. One can but hope!

All the best. David
