Wishful Thinking's Local History Pages

This is the “Home” page for information I've collected relating to Family and Local History research in England and Wales. This includes transcriptions of 19th century Directories, Census, and Memorial Inscriptions, Photographs, Articles and Book Reviews, both of my own, and of others. Transcriptions by other researchers are included with their kind permission.

Most of the information is divided into counties. The Map on the right shows English and Welsh county boundaries prior to 1974. The counties in RED are where my own personal research interests lie. Those in PINK are where I have only a peripheral interest.

Please click on a RED or PINK county, or use the list of counties below the map to navigate to an index of available information for that county, or choose one of the items below, for information relating to research more generally.
