These aren’t indexed and you will have to search them page by page as we used to do in pre internet days !!

However if you haven’t used quarter session records before then you are in for a treat. They give so much information that isn’t found elsewhere. What a joy to have such records being scanned and now online.

You will need to sign up for a Familysearch account, but this is very easy.

The blog concerns itself with documents and their stories that are coming to light due to the Paths to Crime project

The aim of this two year project is to catalogue and repackage the Bedfordshire Quarter Sessions Rolls from 1831-1900. This collection of court papers will be a valuable resource for both the family and social historian.

The latest blog is called And Your Name Is ?. Well worth a read and shows what a great resource these Quarter Session Rolls are.
