About Me

Quite simply, I love collecting old historical documents!

I have collected a range of historical documents, dating from between the 17th Century to the 20th Century, from all parts of the United Kingdom.

The historical documents that I own are of importance and interest to genealogists, family historians, and local historians.

This blog is my attempt to make my collection of historical documents freely available to anyone with a passion for studying genealogy or history!

All I ask in return is fairness and that you comply with the terms & conditions of using the copyright material contained in this blog.

To assist Readers, an Index of Place Names and Surnames mentioned in the Blog Posts is available at the bottom of the Blog Page - Sadly, this feature is not available on some mobile devices.
