Local History Discussions

After launching the Local History section in March 2014, we began to get requests from genealogists and local historians for help and information. These were dealt with by e-mail exchanges. We realised that some of the topics would be interesting and helpful to others and even bring to light new information or sources that would help everyone. We therefore created this discussion area where readers can ask questions of the researchers, locals and others, make comments, etc.

When the site was migrated to a new secure platform in March 2021, previous threads on the Local History Discussions page were not appearing. Whilst I continue to try and solve the problem, I have retrieved them from the Disqus site and copied them to an archive page (they actually look better in my opinion!).
