Records Review – Ancient Irish

Ancient Ireland has a lot to do with Scotland and Europe directly as much of it has affected Ireland today as it did in 1100.

Records were based with clans, family oral traditions and with the druids too.

Census records were done – just not like they are done in today’s standards.  Valuations were done in Ireland to determine land or property value to ensure land was maintained.  Poor people were basically rooted out by some of this antics.

Irelands split up between North and the Republic until later.  Today’s border differences helps us get access to the data we need to fill in our histories.

I’ll write more on this subject in the future.  As it really is an ineresting one indeed.
