More archives & libraries have signed up to allow their collections to be put online in the months to come so this is a site which need to be bookmarked as a favourite and returned to on a regular basis.

The graphics come through very clearly and also on a side bar is some interesting information about the map. Maps add so much to a family history that I am sure we will all join in congratulating the University of Portsmouth in offering such a wonderful site.
