The Public Records Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) has published the following announcement:
“PRONI is pleased to announce the release of a new local and family history digital resource. In conjunction with FamilySearch, PRONI has digitised the Valuation Revision Books, 1864-1933. These are now available on the PRONI website.
The application provides a fully searchable placename index to the Valuation Revision Books (VAL/12/B) covering counties Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry and Tyrone. In total, c.3,900 volumes were digitally captured, with over 440,000 images now available to view online.
The digital application is searchable by Placename (City, County, Parish, Townland) or PRONI Reference. The cities of Londonderry and Belfast have been indexed to Street and Ward level. Streets can be found by using the free text search.
Of the c.3,900 original volumes, 44 have not yet been scanned. These remaining volumes will be added to the database at a future date.
The database can be viewed by clicking on the following link: http://www.proni.gov.uk/index/search_the_archives/val12b.htm”
