Rather belatedly and well into a rather grey and wet January, here is a little reminder of Christmases past: https://www.hicklingnottslocalhistory.com/christmas/
The Wadkin archives contain 16 albums of press cuttings – they have all now been uploaded to the website. In the coming weeks they will appear in the various categories across the website (but it will take some time …).
New page added; an introduction to the Civil War.
A new maps page has been uploaded – if you can add any additional information we would love to hear from you.
Next stages: set up all the ‘category’ pages for houses, families & lots of other fascinating bits’n’bobs then upload the map scans & newspaper articles! Phew …
Please take a few minutes to browse through these images; they sum up just what local history collections are all about – extraordinary images!
Old Wills are an extraordinary resource for local historians – more will be added over time (as well as an introduction explaining how to use them & why they are useful) but there are 100s here for you to start with.
