Hello and welcome to those of you who have read about the City Making History project in the York Press and come along to find out more. This blog is the story of the cataloguing project, where I talk about what I’m doing, why and how.
Otherwise feel free to dive right in and explore the content! You can start at the beginning and read through chronologically by clicking the months on the left bar (always my favourite way to catch up with a new blog) or you can use the tag cloud to go straight to the topics that interest you.
If you want to find out about being an archivist and what actually happens behind the scenes, then click on “What archivists do” or if you are more interested in seeing historic records, then click “Lucky Dips” to see archives in lots of detail.
Like what you see? Why not join my regular followers by subscribing by email – then you get each new post (typically once a week) sent direct to you inbox.
Not seen the Press feature yet? Just pick up a local paper or click through to the York Press website. It was very strange to be interviewed and being the one in front of the camera for once, I think I prefer to hide behind my keyboard!
The project is a third of the way through. Five months down, ten to go and please don’t forget to get in touch and let me know your thoughts, questions or ideas via the comments box you’ll find at the bottom of every post.
