Seems it still in the early stages but will give you discription of how people would have farmed in a particular townland by making sense of the codes used in the Valuation books.
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

Thanks Sinann

I have bookmarked this. It has great potential to help 'flesh out the bones' so to speak, of the family story.
