St. Andrews Records

a Web-based Public History project

About The Project

This is a collaborative community history project between students of Trinity College Dublin and St Andrews Resource Centre. The ongoing objective is to digitize the school records of St Andrews Parish schools from 1895, and to provide the Resource Centre with a valuable online record of the detailed registers at their disposal. We want to create open-source history of high quality with tangible results for the residents and diaspora of this city-centre school in Dublin.

Working Life

These graphs are based on a sample of 202 students whose parents’ occupations were listed in one of St. Andrew’s register books from 1911, which we cross-referenced these with the 1911 census. These two graphs visualize some of this data. The first one breaks down by category the different occupations that students’ parents held in 1911 based on the census. As the most common occupation listed was labourer, we broke down the different types of labourer listed in this second graph.
