Arranged in three parts, this work opens with an Introduction that retraces the history of the Tithe Applotment Survey, and explains the author's research and presentation methods. Part I is a Full Name Index that includes over 12,600 tithe payers and links them one of 930 neighborhood-like townland locations. Part II is a Recapitulation of the Tithe Records arranged alphabetically by townland. It places each person in the context of his neighborhood population and doubles as a place name index to the map set. Standardized and obsolete place names are thoroughly cross-referenced and reconciled wherever possible. Part III consists of 3 maps of Longfords major land divisions, plus 27 Civil Parish Maps of its townlands in a unique pre-Ordnance Survey format.

For the first time, this volume provides a comprehensive index of each entry in County Longford's Tithe Books, as well as their associated recapitulations and additional schedules. It shows each tithe payer in the context of his or her townland's survey records.
