I am interested in putting together or joining a proposed panel for the 2019 Rural History conference at the EHESS. My paper will be about the calculation of crop yields from auctions of standing grain (called ventes de fruits pendant par racine in French) that were done as part of the probate process. The paper deals with the period 1700-1830, and deals with the province of Burgundy. It would fit well within a panel on the calculation of agricultural productivity or one on the use of probate records in rural history.
