Tithe Applotment Surveys – Ireland

I spent the last week in Fort Wayne, Indiana at the Federation of Genealogical Societies (FGS) conference.  While there, I managed to do some research at the Allen County Public Library, including looking up Rusks in the the Tithe Applotment surveys for Counties Cavan, Donegal, and Monaghan.  There are also entries in Counties Down, Derry, and Fermanagh, but I didn’t find these counties listed in the printed index to counties and parishes on the Tithe Applotment microfilms.  I did find one of the Fermanagh entries in one of the microfilm rolls coverinh County Monaghan.  I’ve added all of the Tithe Applotment entries to this site and will be adding additional Griffith’s Valuations over time.

      I found richard rusks parents were edward and elizabeth rusk and that they came to australia as bounty immigrants. Still cant find where in cavan they are from. I know that some of my rusk relatives branched off from edward and went to canada and the u.s. Thanks 🙂
