Council of Irish Genealogical Organisations (CIGO)
Both CIGO & the Genealogical Society of Ireland (GSI) have long called for public access to the Republic’s 1926 census returns. This policy is one which CIGO has been actively pursuing over the past few years. GSI recently announced the publication in the autumn of a parliamentary Bill through which it hopes access can be secured to these returns. You might also like to subscribe to CIGO’s on-line petition calling for the early release of the 1926 census.
