More on PRONI's Valuation Revision Books

Just a quick update - I've been in touch with PRONI to ask about the content still to go online in the Valuation Revision Books (see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/preview-pronis-valuation-revision-books.html for news on the release earlier). Forty four books have still to be added, the reference numbers being as follows:

VAL/12/B/1/12A   Electoral Division of Coggrey 1923-1929
VAL/12/B/1/14A-F   Electoral Division of Craigarogan 1864-1929
VAL/12/B/1/25C-F   Electoral Division of Rashee 1881-1929
VAL/12/B/3/1A-C   Electoral Division of Ahoghill 1865-1900
VAL/12/B/3/5L-T   Electoral Division of Ballymena 1896-1931
VAL/12/B/4/3D-G   Electoral Division of Ballymoney 1884-1930
VAL/12/B/4/17C   Electoral Division of Killoquin Upper 1884-1897
VAL/12/B/4/18A-E   Electoral Division of Kilraghts 1864-1929
VAL/12/B/4/19A   Electoral Division of Kirkmoyle, Ballymoney 1923-1929
VAL/12/B/7/3C   Missing from series (Ballynure)
VAL/12/B/8/7C   Missing from series (Lambeg)
VAL/12/B/25/7C   Missing from series (Magheraveely)
VAL/12/B/26/25D-E   Electoral Division of Imeroo 1890-1923
VAL/12/B/38/8A   Missing (Caledon)
VAL/12/B42/19C   ?
VAL/12/B/43/H/4   Electoral Division of Duncairn Vol 3 1906-1915
VAL/12/B/44/4A-C   ?

The Search Hunt and Tips page for the collection will carry the full metatdata for these shortly. I was interested to note that an early book for Caledon is missing - potentially the homeland where my Graham lot came from before moving to Belfast.

I asked also about the possibility of name indexing - as FamilySearch was involved in their digitisation, it is possible that they may be indexed in due course, but there's been no decision on that as yet.
