The Evesham Index
« on: Sunday 23 July 06 12:44 BST (UK) »
Hi Folks,

The Bromsgrove branch website of the BMSGH have now added a link to a "The Evesham Index" which was created by Sarah Minney as a means of storing information collected whilst researching her family history.  She then started to add entries for Evesham people and so from one box and a packet of index cards it has grown over 17 years to what it is today 16 boxes containing an estimated 20,000 card references. Some individual names are represented on many cards while others may only be mentioned on one.

Julie Sutton is the new administrator.  Full details are on our Resources page linked from the Home page below.  (As an anti spam device please remove the letters "...gene..."  from Julie's email address, or it won't work.)

What exactly can be found in the index?

Local villages such as Bengeworth, Bretforton, Badsey, Great & Little Hampton and the Littletons are also represented.
Another interesting inclusion is the contact details for anyone who has requested information about a name, so that future enquirers can be put in touch with others who are researching the same names.
