New beginnings – January 29, 2017


Having lost the old blog, it is time for new beginnings.

In the weeks and months to come you will find posts here that spring from the old documents that pass across my desk. As these documents vary hugely, the topics of my posts will vary too, from medieval inventories to Australian convicts, W.W.1 diaries, to Bristol merchants.

The documents we transcribe for our clients remain private and confidential, and so you won’t find many transcripts on this blog. However almost all the documents that I see give rise to a question, spark an interest, intrigue me and urge me to dig a little deeper, and that’s what I shall write about.

I hope you enjoy these musings, and would welcome any constructive feedback.
