The Society has started a programme of submitting data sets to Find My Past. This will provide researchers with a greater opportunity for breaking down that 'Brickwall' they are working on.

To search for a particular locality just start typing the place name in the 'Search' box. The table will be refined as you type. To see more entries per page please adjust the counter.
