Religion of inmates in 1848, South Dublin, Enniskillen and Armagh workhouses
I’ll add a couple of things from my filing cabinet for your perusal.
Dublin, Enniskillen and Armagh workhouse populations were both bottom heavy and top heavy i.e. the largest age groups were the elderly and the young.
SOME FAMILY RECONSTITUTIONS
These were the foundation for my measure of orphans’ family size, age at marriage, age at death, marriage partners et al.
Sometimes my family reconstitution forms proved difficult to understand. Here Allan Smith was very close to getting it exactly right.
Sometimes I had my doubts I’d recaptured an Irish female orphan. I had doubts about this next one so did not use her in my calculations.
Sometimes I was fortunate enough to go back into civil registration records to check on things; I found family historians often underestimated the size of their orphan’s Australian family. Having to purchase every registration that was made was just too expensive. Here’s one that got it exactly right.
