The most important discovery is the Alien registration records of 1914-1922 when non-national (non-British subjects) had to register with the police.

A talk was recently given in the Irish Jewish Museum (IJM) as part of 2016 National Heritage Week. The title of the talk was the Who ever heard of the Jewish involvement in the 1916 Rising.

The speaker was Stuart Rosenblatt, Ireland's foremost authority of the genealogy of Jews in Ireland. In his talk Stuart brought to life previously little known links between Dublin's Jewish and the 1916 Uprising. He details the significant roles played by men and women alike, together with the widespread support for self rule among the community. He also highlights other members of the community who opposed independence and enlisted in the Crown Forces, thereby maintaining the centuries old tradition of 2 Jews, 3 opinions!

Following his talk, Stuart's unequaled scholarship was acknowledged by Leonard Abrahamson (President, JRCI), who informed the audience that a plaque will be installed in the Irish Jewish Museum in recognition of Stuart's selfless achievements.
