Haverhill Suffolk

The Haverhill branch of the Suffolk Family History Society has its own website and what a grand site it is. The group have put online church transcripts, articles on families from the area, the 1891 census for the area, links, a forum and contact details.

The site is part of a larger website for the Haverhill area and this has pages for local history and other items of interest to those with links to Haverhill.

Well done !!

Warwickshire Online Databases

Whilst we are on the subject of Warwickshire …….. the Warwickshire Record Office has a range of online databases which would be very helpful to those with Warwickshire family.

Victuallers Database
The Victuallers database is a database containing details of licensed victuallers in Warwickshire from 1801-1828. The information has been taken from the series of registers of calendars of Victuallers’ Recognizances held by the County Record Office.

Tithe Apportionments Database
The
Tithe Apportionments database contains information from the Warwickshire tithe apportionments, produced after the Tithe Commutation Act of 1836. Not all our parishes have apportionments, but those that have now appear on this website and the data entry is complete.

Calendar of Prisoners
The Calendars of Prisoners database is an index to the ‘Calendars of Prisoners’ or lists of those held in the County Prisons (in Warwick, Birmingham and Coventry) for trial at the Courts of Assize and the Quarter Sessions courts held in Warwick between 1800 and 1900.

Windows on Warwickshire
Windows on Warwickshire is a searchable database of images of historic photographs and other items held at Warwickshire museums, archives and libraries, as well as Compton Verney Art Gallery and Warwick Castle.

Hamble Hampshire old photos

Following on from my post yesterday about the Hamble Local History Society I have found another good website for Hamble. This time it is “Hamble interactive” and they have a great section with old photos of the village.

This is a must look at for those with ancestors who lived or worked in Hamble.

I would love to show a little screen shot of the website, but at the moment for reasons best know to itself Microsoft Livewriter won’t let me attach photos. I’m trying to sort the problem out, but in the meantime you will just have to click on the link and see the site that way Hamble Hampshire old photos<p><!

Hamble Hampshire Local History Society

Many years ago I used to have a boat moored on Hamble River and I got to know the village quite well, so I was interested to find this website authored by the local history society.

The site has all the unusual interesting pages such as history, photos and meetings, it also has a handy list of links to neighbouring sites.

So if your people came from this delightful village this is the site for you.

Craven Yorkshire website

An interesting article in this months WDYTYA magazine pointed me to this website which is dedicated to the men who fought & died in WW1 and who were from the Craven district of Yorkshire. The Craven district is the area within a 20 mile radius of Skipton in North Yorkshire.

So if you have an interest in this area take a look at this site, it is a great example of what people with an enthusiasm for history can achieve.
