Local History Lives

Local History Lives!
Introduction to Local History Lives! project presented to the Research and Discussion Group on 10 February 2022

We are all comfortable using national websites to help us trace our ancestors, but most only go back to the 19th century and if they offer earlier records they are for specific parishes, not for Milford.

Our new project, Local History Lives will place your Milford ancestors at your fingertips

We shall introduce three on-line finding aids:

•        Word searchable files containing over 150 research articles prepared by the Society over the last 100 years.

•        A Names Directory which searches through over 75,000 records of people or places associated with Milford.

•        Parish Registers from 1595 – 1837 containing over 20,000 records.

The project is planned to start in July 2022 and last for 12 months. Access to the finding aids using this website will be rolled out over the life of the project.
