History to Herstory website

I’ve written abou this before but it is really good – do visit it.  This West Yorkshire website is now fully launched and is searchable by surnames.  It is called History to Herstory.  There is now free access to 80,000 images taken from primary sources relating to the lives of women in Yorkshire, from 1100 AD to the present day.

Each document is digitised in full and linked to an improved catalogue record. http://www.historytoherstory.org.uk

There is a brilliant photo of ‘the National Spinsters’ Pension Association’!  You can download the index of documents at http://www.historytoherstory.org.uk/Collections_index.pdf

You can see for example the following: Jane Barber, of Cleckheaton, handwriting exercise book KC7 1830 Maisie Eades, of Mirfield, Civil Defence records KC921 1943-1949 Marion Booth, of Moldgreen, weaver, photographs KC810 1930s Mary Pedley, of Huddersfield, 1826 marriage licence C587/001 1826
