Published in 1924 Alumni Dublinenses is a register of provosts, professors, graduates and students of Trinity College Dublin, Ireland’s oldest university. The publication mentions individuals who were at Trinity between 1593 – 1846, and is especially valuable for its list of over 32,000 names from 1593-1637, a period for which no original registers survive.

The Freemen of Dublin City provides information on almost 6000 men admitted to the Freedom of the City of Dublin between 1774 and 1824. The list is predominately made up of tradesmen and craftsmen, including makers of furniture, silver and clocks but also includes masters of other branches of the fine and applied arts.
