War­wick­shire Bytes: 100 Sto­ries Of County His­tory

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - 50 WEBSITES TO WATCH -


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.
