NWOCP Newsletter No 8

Minack cliff-top theatre in Cornwall

Centre of picture - girl with smile - yet another grandchild!

The NWOCP continues to make steady progress with the 1841 returns with about half of them now transcribed and online. However, movement on the 1861 & 71 is much slower and on the 1891 there isn't anything to report.

What I would like you to do if you are working on the 1861 or 1871 returns is to drop me a line sometime. Please confirm the details below and give me a rough estimate of your progress. Transcribers can just tell me which image they are on and how many they have left; Checkers can select review progress under Options and just cut and paste the results into their email.

Some of you have not written to me for a long while and I really need to have some idea of how you are doing - or if, indeed, you are doing anything. I received a disc the other day from a chap who had it for a year. He had never written to me and had not made a start on the piece.

This is an option open to everyone. If you don't want to carry out the task, then just let me know and return the disc - no hard feelings on my part.

If you are finding it hard work, please take my advice and just do a few hours a week; it will get done sooner than you think.

Email is very simple - so just please write to me!!!!!

Hey, landed on your blog, nice stuff. I found a cool new tool for our blogs... It helps get latest news for our keywords directly on to our blog. I added it on mine. Worked like a charm.
