NEWS - 06th Feb 2016

Help!: There are only a few people running the archive. If you are interested in finding out what we do and possibly joining us then why not come along to our next meeting - Rochford Library 10:30 Friday 12th February. We have a wide range of things where we could use additional help.

Mary James: Can anyone help Angela Reed find out more about her relative from Great Wakering? Click here to view her post on the site General Message Board. Also see Brian Pettitt's offer to help by clicking here and info from Brian Meldon here. Angela Reed acknowledges help starting here.

New stuff: We have had twelve new comments on articles since 11/11/15. The first few lines of the first four of these are listed below and there is a link to the first 50 comments underneath this. Click on article titles to get further.

Keith Williams: Does anyone know the whereabouts of Keith? If you do please have a look at the recent comment on our Rochford Hospital article and then post another comment or drop us an email.

Latest Scrolling Images: Have a look at the latest scrolling banner image here. It comes from a collection of glass plate photographs made by Samuel Saxby-Hill in the early 1900s. The two previous scrolling images come from the NLS website (there is a link to the Scottish Library with the second image). With the NLS link you should easily be able to find where you live and compare past and present. Have fun !

Audio Files: There are a number of articles on the site with attached audio that you can find here. We also run a YouTube channel holding other audio not published on the site. Click here for more information and a link to the channel: it contains things like Peter Whittingham's "Rochford Past and Present", to be found at the bottom of the list and here on YouTube
