Lynsted with Kingsdown Society
Welcome to our Newsletter that goes to Society Members as well as visitors who ask to receive it because of their interest in the Parish, its people and events. Through this service, we will alert you to recent additions to the records of the Society and forthcoming events. All newsletters can be browsed on the Society’s web site.
Norma Baxter will be standing down as Events Co-ordinator at our next AGM on 26th October 2011 - so, we do need a new person to help us with this important function for our thriving Society. If you would like to learn more, please talk to Norma (01795 521515) or any of the Committee. So, please do contact us if you can help us with this thriving and interesting Community organisation.
Recording and Archiving of Local History
Report on 2011 Open Day now available on the web site. Some important and surprising discoveries. If you missed the Open Day display material, we shall be displaying at the Lynsted Traditional Village Fete on 29th August (Bank Holiday).
The subgroup have now captioned 2,600 of the 3,000 files scanned to date - but a large box and several files have recently arrived from the Parish Council - including some fascinating records for the 1937 Jubilee and Coronation Celebrations! Keep it coming! All contributions are welcome at any time.
Transcription Volunteers Update
Thank you’s go to those who responded to our cry for help in copy-typing to help us transcribe documents that cannot all be done automatically on a PC.
Documents posted onto the web site as they are transcribed.
and an addition .....
If you would like to add your name to our transcribers, we should be very grateful - please do contact us. We can cope with typewritten or computer transcriptions of the wide selection of small and large documents. This is the kind of task that does not have fixed deadlines and can be fitted into your own timetables. Any help in this direction would be very gratefully received by the project sub-group. With your help, these fascinating documents can then be publish and shared through the web site and Society publications in due course.
To learn more about this project or contribute material or stories, please contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org. Latest news and published documents can be found on the dedicated pages for this Society project.
