    1. [IRISH-SCOTS] Valuation Revision Books on Proni
    2. Pat Connors
    3. For the last three days, I have been searching and printing out pages of these wonderful books that are free online for everyone who has ancestors from the Northern Ireland counties. These books were kept after the Griffith's Valuation was printed in the late 1840s, 1850s & 1860s. You can find the index for the GV at: http://www.failteromhat.com/griffiths.htm You can find the actual printed GVs here: http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/index.xml Back to PRONI, the revision books are in five groups by date: 1864-1880 1881-1894 1894-1907 1906-1920 1920-1929 They show how the land/property changed owners/tenants over the years. Say John Doe was the tenant in the GV, then when John Doe died, the lease was turn over to son Joe Doe, his son. The revision page would show John crossed out and Joe written in, often in different colors. The way over on the right, if lucky, it will give the year the property changed hands in the same color as what the new name was written. I have found sometimes the recorded actually wrote 'died' when the property changed hands. The above gives great genealogical information. The earlier books, however, are not as great as the later books with dates and colors but will give you an idea when the land changed hands by the dates of the books (1864-1880). Connect the data with the 1901 and 1911 censuses, also free on the Archives of Ireland website and you can piece your family together... To find the books... The Proni url is: http://www.proni.gov.uk/ On the right, click on: Valuation Revison Books Again, on the right, click on: Search Valuation Revision Books Then you will get a search screen so have your townland, County and Civil Parish ready. After you put those three things in the search boxes, you will get a list of the valuation revision books available. Click on the one you are interested under 'Proni Reference'. The interface for the books are tricky but the more you use it, the more you will get used to it. When you find a page with your people, you can print it and the copies are very clear and almost better than those seen on the screen. -- Pat Connors, Sacramento CA http://www.connorsgenealogy.com

    3. I have seen Antrim Estates papers in PRONI, Belfast from the 1840s and 1850s in which the Earl of Antrim’s estate manager reported to the Earl that he had tried to persuade tenants in the Glens of Antrim to grow a mix of crops, and not to be one crop dependant, because it was a risky strategy. However tenants responded by explaining that you can get more potatoes to an acre then any other crop especially from poor ground; also that potatoes are low maintenance, and that they didn’t have sufficient land or manure to grow a variety of things. With huge families, they needed all the food they could grow. Quite apart from the effects of the potato blight, growing potatoes in the same ground year after year exhausts the soil, so probably it was all a disaster waiting to happen.

    3. I wish I could remember the author/title of the book I read years ago expressing the same conclusions. I just remember the gist of its being that the Quakers did try to change the minds of the people into growing other sustainable food but that, as noted below, years of growing successfully potato crops did not convince them that they needed to change. . The blight happened at that time in other parts of Europe, but seemingly it was most devastating in Ireland as that was the main source of food, with the average man eating 14 lbs (?) of potatoes a day. Fourteen pounds is one stone, which I well remember carrying home in my mother's potato bag from the Co-operative store where we "all" shopped. A stone of potatoes was plenty to feed our large family for more than one meal. """In 1851, the Census of Ireland Commissioners recorded 24 failures of the potato crop going back to 1728, of varying severity. In 1739, the crop was "entirely destroyed", and again in 1740. In 1770, the crop largely failed again. In 1800, there was another "general" failure, and in 1807, 50% of the crop was lost. In 1821 and 1822, the potato crop failed completely in Munster and Connaught, and 1830 and 1831 were years of failure in Mayo, Donegal and Galway. In 1832, 1833, 1834 and 1836, a large number of districts suffered serious loss, and in 1835, the potato failed in Ulster. 1836 and 1837 brought "extensive" failures throughout Ireland and again in 1839 failure was universal throughout the country; both 1841 and 1844 potato crop failure was widespread. According to Woodham-Smith, "the unreliability of the potato crop was an accepted fact in Ireland.[32]""" As ever, there were all the political ramifications woven into this tragedy.

    3. THE FAMILY HISTORY SOCIETY of ENC CELEBRATES SECOND ANNIVERSARY With An Original Song, James City Presentation, Two Civil War Film Premieres, and an Encore Film The Family History Society of Eastern North Carolina will celebrate its second anniversary with a special program in partnership with the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society of Craven Community College commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of New Bern at 1pm on March 31, 2012 in Cullman Performance Hall at the North Carolina History Center located at 529 South Front Street, New Bern. Mrs. Helen Sims Smaw will debut her piano composition “Song of New Bern” in honor of the second anniversary of the Society and in memory of those whose lives where affected by the Battle of New Bern. Mrs. Smaw, a resident of New Bern, is an internationally recognized composer and lyricist. Mr. Ben A. Watford, president of the James City Historical Society and a local historian, will discuss the many accomplishments of the James City Historical Society over the past 20 years including the renovated slave quarters located in James City. He will also display tools and items used by slaves during the antebellum era. Mr. Tony D. Bryant, a New Bernian, graduate of New Bern High School, decorated USMC Veteran, Phi Theta Kappa alumnus, graduate of Craven Community College, and a current student at East Carolina University will present his two original short films about New Bern during the Civil War. The first is “Baptism by Fire: The Battle for New Berne” which tells the story of this pivotal March 1862 event in New Bern’s history. The second is “For Liberty and Union” which explores the Union Army occupation of New Bern, the effect on the people of the area, and the creation of the James City community. Ms. Rebekah Turnage, Treasurer of Phi Theta Kappa, and History Professor Kate Smaw Amerson, Craven Community College faculty advisor for PTK, will present the third film which will be an encore showing of the “Voices of New Bern”, the award-winning Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society documentary which recognizes some forgotten voices who made history in New Bern. Delicious desserts will be served in Mattocks Hall after the film premieres. The program is free and open to the public and everyone is welcome to participate in this historic occasion.

    3. I don't know if you had an answer about the sasine abbreviations but here goes: scised = misreading of seised [hence sasine, a record of being seised] disp. = disposition ret. gen. serv. = retour general service, ie he was served heir to his father. See the corresponding entry in the Service of Heirs which reads David Wylie shoemaker in Clackmannan to his father David Wylie weaver there - heir general - dated 23d July 1789 [and not 1780 which you probably also misread] Iain Kennedy Glasgow, Scotland http://www.kennedydna.com Jenny wrote: But have also found where I had transcribed from a Film of Sassines in Clackmannan some of the wording and abbreviations I do not quite understand and I have below three and wonder if someone could advise exactly what is meant.
