This is very embarrassing to admit but I have misplaced an important file. Any help much appreciated.
Maybe five years ago, I found the Griffith's Revision/Cancellation books for County Kings/Offaly. My great-great grandfather was there and I was then able to see the year the family was evicted--mid to late 1850s or early 1860s. I have searched every file I have, paper and digital, but can't find the info. When I found the info, I printed each page from the original Griffith's to when his name was crossed out in a heavy black line. Just can't find those papers.
I believe I got the records on microfilm from FamilySearch when they were still lending them out to libraries. These are vital records for my family and I'd like to get that info again if anyone has any ideas on how to do it. No such luck as them being online, is there? I can't seem to find them on FamilySearch but may be missing them.
My great-great grandfather's name was Michael Herrick. He was a tenant in the civil parish of Drumcullen, townland of Knockbarron. Landowner was John Head Drought who seems to have put this townland up for auction in December 1855 but for some reason a neighbor, Thomas Bernard of Castle Bernard in Kinnitty, became 'caretaker' and that's when Michael Herrick and many others were evicted. Sorry this is so long and thanks for any help.
