I'm telling the story of my G.G.Grandmother from Knockfarnaught born 1788 left for Canada in 1848 and died here in 1877. I have no understanding as to how people with no jobs, no income and living a distance from a shopping sized community could cloth themselves and their many children.
I don't want to make it simplistic and romantic but I don't want to make it a pathetic nightmare either. I know they were a proud people,they've passed that on......and I want to do her story as truthfully as I can.
I cannot access information about what's inside the museum only information about the museum itself. I truely would appreciate it if anyone has any idea of how they managed the clothing issue so I have something to build on.
Even a book where I could find that sort of social history would be a blessing here.
