Warwickshire Bytes: 100 Stories Of County History
Heritage and Culture Warwickshire is looking to recruit remote volunteers to help index the county’s collection of depositions made to quarter-session courts between 1828 and 1918. These names, residences and occupations will form a searchable online database of records, currently only available to view in person. Meanwhile experienced researchers are also needed to track down individuals exempted from military service, to find out what happened to them post-1918. The most interesting cases will be used as part of Warwickshire Bytes, a digital resource that will celebrate 100 individual stories of living, playing and working in Warwickshire, and will feature on the Our Warwickshire website. Watch out for the Bytes team at local libraries and events in January. If you wish to volunteer for remote research, email [email protected]wickshire.gov.uk.
