Description

Member of Supervisory Committee for Books of Survey and Distribution Digitisation Project

The Books of Survey and Distribution are the most important source for land ownership in seventeenth century Ireland. This project involved the digitisation of the survey volumes in order to create a searchable database. The project has been jointly commissioned by The Irish Manuscripts Commission and Trinity College Dublin. I was one of three members of the supervisory committee nominated by the IMC. The digitisation is now complete and will be launched in September 2018.
