Hello Evelyn, Thanks for your input on the growing and harvesting of potatoes; always good to receive insights from a researcher residing in Co. Tyrone; your time employed in a heritage museum allows us to benefit from your research and experience of working amongst the relics and records of times gone by.
All researchers residing outside Northern Ireland value your insight on this and also your generous transcriptions of the 1703 Archbishopric of Armagh estate lease books (Ashe Manuscripts) http://www.cotyroneireland.com/estates/armagh_cornwall.html http://www.cotyroneireland.com/estates/armagh1693.html http://www.cotyroneireland.com/estates/armagh1703.html http://www.cotyroneireland.com/estates/armagh1703.html http://www.cotyroneireland.com/estates/armagh1703.html http://www.cotyroneireland.com/estates/armagh1703.html Many thanks indeed for your kindness and regards, Len Swindley, Melbourne, Australia (volunteer transcriber and submitter of files to CTI http://www.cotyroneireland.com/ Sent from Mail<https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=550986> for Windows 10 ________________________________ From: CoTyroneList <cotyronelist-boun...@cotyroneireland.com> on behalf of EVELYN CARDWELL via CoTyroneList <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Saturday, October 27, 2018 10:53:14 PM To: CoTyroneIreland.com Mailing List Cc: EVELYN CARDWELL Subject: Re: [CoTyroneMailingList] A few thoughts on the Lt. Stother account Ron's description of the joys of planting and picking potatoes is an excellent record of the task and backache involved before mechanisation. If only more people would record their memories like this. However most people in early 19th century Ireland were only growing smaller quantities for the use of their families, perhaps an acre or two at most, and not on a commercial basis. With families to assist, it was not a particularly time consuming task, especially during the growing season in summer.
