    Biography/Administrative history:
    Immigration, Irish: Lists of immigrants from various parishes in Londonderry, Ireland, are contained in the Ordnance Survey of Ireland. These lists were published by the Genealogical Publishing Company in July, 1989 as a book entitled Irish Emigration Lists, 1833-1839: Lists of Emigrants Extracted from the Ordnance Survey Memoirs for Counties Londonderry and Antrim by Brian Mitchell. The purpose of the Ordnance Survey of Ireland was to map the whole country at a scale of six inches to one mile, and the six-inch maps appeared between 1835 and 1846. Field notebooks in which the information for the Ordnance Survey was recorded are now in the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin. They cover nineteen of Ireland's thirty-two counties, though the memoirs of Antrim and Londonderry are the only ones with lists of emigrants. The published lists, arranged under parish and alphabetized, identify the emigrant's destination and his place of origin in Ireland. In addition, the age, town and address, year of emigration, and religious denomination are given for each emigrant. Over 3,000 emigrants are identified in this book. Book Description, Amazon, 1501
