EUREKASHIRE NEWS - LAST UPDATED 12th September 2019.


Many of the archives we visit have been hit by reduced funding which has resulted in reduced opening hours and/or reduced document production times.  Please ensure before setting out to visit an archive that it won't be closed when you arrive and, if you know reference numbers, order documents in advance of your visit.     

We last visited Reading on January 24th when we continued our transcription of the Bucklebury (Morton's Chapel) Congregational Church records and the Wokingham Charity records.
