Extracts from the Wisbech Standard
« on: Sunday 01 January 06 23:11 GMT (UK) »
Whenever I get the chance when visiting my parents, I go into the library at
Wisbech and peruse the films of the "Wisbech Standard" - usually searching
for BMD notices and obits.   As I have quite a few prints from these visits,
I have started transcribing them and putting on my website - link below:

so far I have:
Birth/Married/Died notices - Wisbech Standard, March 23 1888
Birth/Married/Died notices - Wisbech Standard, April 20 1888
Birth/Married/Died notices - Wisbech Standard, June 22 1888
Birth/Married/Died notices - Wisbech Standard, July 6 1888
Birth/Married/Died notices - Wisbech Standard, August 17 1888
Birth/Married/Died notices - Wisbech Standard, September 28 1888
Married/Died notices - Wisbech Standard, October 29 1899
Departure of Local Reserve Men [to the Boer War] -
                                         Wisbech Standard, November 10, 1899
Upwell News - Wisbech Standard, December 15 1899
"Coursing - A Relic of Barbarism" - Wisbech Standard, January 26 1917
Local Casualties - Wisbech Standard, November 18 1918

Enjoy!

p.s. I will be adding more, but the day job definitely gets in the way  :-[

Have just added a few more pages [taking the lap top on our caravanning weekends certainly works!]

Amongst the various printouts that I have, I have discovered some from the "Wisbech Chronicle" of 1858.

Full list on my Clippings Index page.
