"The Institute's mission is twofold: first, scholarly research and documentation; and second, outreach to a broader audience. Ongoing research involves faculty and students from many departments (as well as visiting scholars) examining how German-speaking immigrants and their descendants have both shaped their North American environment and been shaped by it. Outreach efforts center on bringing a better understanding of issues of German-American immigration, history, culture, and language to a general public as well as to school children."

Gives you the county, barony, civil parish, poor law union, and province for each townland. If for some reason your search for a townland name doesn't reveal any matches, run a search on only the county and it will pull up a list for every town in the county. Sometimes the search is just wonky, other times the town may be listed as a variant of how you thought it was spelled.

"Find the name of the town your Bavarian ancestors emigrated from by using the Bavarian Emigration Database. The Bavaria Emigration Database has been compiled from emigration notices printed in Bavarian newspapers as one of the conditions to legally emigrate from Bavaria. Printing the notice gave the newspaper readers plenty of time to put in a claim if they were owed money by the person leaving the Kingdom of Bavaria.
The database has a few records from as early as 1823, but most of records are from 1832 to 1873."
