Computing for Historians - Exercise 8

  • Using JSTOR, carry out a search for ‘Irish emigration statistics’.


  • Using this criteria ‘A Note on Nineteenth-Century Irish Emigration Statistics’ should appear at the top of the list of search results: select this article and browse through the text to find a table of statistics.


  • Save the table as ‘emigration statistics’ (in the format of your choice) to your H: Drive folder – ‘Computing for Historians’. Compare your findings with the demonstration at the end of the presentation for Section 8.
