Isn’t the internet marvellous ? Always something popping up that you weren’t aware of that will be useful in your genealogy. This time it is the Spectator Archive website. This publication started in 1828 and for the period 1828 – 2008 every page has been scanned and digitised, each article tagged and extracted, so that you can search the whole archive by content, keyword, topic, location, and date. Plus this is online free of charge
Here’s something to look forward to for those with ancestors from Dudley – new archives for the borough of Dudley are set to open a couple of weeks after Christmas on 14 January. The state-of-the-art centre is situated in Tipton Road and replaces the old Coseley Archives.
Dudley Archives have a website that offers information on visiting the archives, how to guides, details of courses run from the site, online catalogues and lots more besides.
