The 1901 Irish census collection contains a record of renowned Irish writer, James Joyce. The record contains his birth year, circa 1882; place, County Dublin, Ireland; and religion, Roman Catholic. His occupation is listed as “student” and his age as 19. The record includes his father’s name, John Stanislaus Joyce, and mother’s name, Mary Joyce. It also lists all of his nine siblings: Eileen, Mabel, Florence, Margaret Alice, Eva May, May Kathleen, Chales Patrick, John Stanislaus, and George Alfred. In the Household section in the record, you can flip between different members to view their entire records. You can also click the icon at the top right corner to see the image of the record as it appears on the Irish National Archives site.
