Cor­nish dig­i­tal ar­chive hits the web

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

A free ar­chive of ma­te­ri­als re­lat­ing to the his­tory of Corn­wall has launched on­line. Made pos­si­ble thanks to a £225,000 grant from the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund, cor­nish­mem­ pro­vides ac­cess to a wealth of pho­to­graphs, films and au­dio record­ings from the county dat­ing back to the mid-19th cen­tury. More than 31,000 items are cur­rently avail­able to ex­plore, but the pro­ject’s cu­ra­tors hope to ex­pand the col­lec­tion over the com­ing months. To see our per­sonal high­lights from the site, turn to ‘Past in Pic­tures’ on page 46.
