1775 Dublin Directory database launched

The Irish Genealogical Research Society has announced the launch of a new resource on its website, a database index to Wilson’s 1775 Dublin Directory.

The Dublin Directory is one of three separate directories published as The Treble Almanac and is probably the most valuable to genealogists. According to the IGRS announcement, it includes “a comprehensive list of Dublin’s barristers, attorneys, medical practitioners, merchants, pawnbrokers, grocers, shoemakers, tanners, uphosters, auctioneers, brewers, painters, ironmongers, drapers, butchers, bakers, tailors, etc. It also includes a listing of the capital city’s streets, lanes, and alleyways.”

Everyone can access the free database, which shows surname, occupation and address. Only IGRS members can see first names.
