The Irish Genealogy & Heraldry Bill, 2006 has created a special category for the returns of the first Census of Ireland which was taken following the War of Independence when the Irish Free State was established by the 1920 Government of Ireland Act. The 1926 census, the first one which was taken since 1911, is an essential resource for the study of genealogy and social history in the Irish Free State. The lengthy closure of the 1926 census created a huge gap in our understanding of the period which included the First World War (1914-18), the Easter Rising (1916), the War of Independence (1919-21) and the Civil War (1921-22). The creation of the special heritage category for the 1926 census enables family historians to check records twenty years earlier than anticipated.
