HELP REQUESTED

           CAN YOU HELP?                       

 

       Can YOU spare a couple of hours or more a week to help Barbara Chapman ensure the contents of her 49 (and growing) albums (containing information, photographs, and other ephemera relating to Leverstock Green's History), can be easily accessed? All that is required is a willingness to undertake the task and your own computer with Microsoft Office's Excell Spreadsheet. (Though I believe if you use Open Office it can be saved as an in Excell's format).

Barbara has been researching Leverstock Green's history now for 25 years and has amassed a great deal of information on the village and its residents over time. Much of this is featured on her website, but she is continually building albums of press-cuttings, Village Newsletters and general ephemera. The latter albums currently number 49 and are growing constantly. (There are an additional number of Press cutting albums + a large box of papers for Barbara still to go through.)       

A number of years ago,  four local ladies spent many hours between them entering information from the items in the albums onto an Excell spreadsheet which enables Barbara to find information easily when required or requested by others.  For example, only the other day Barbara was requested for any information concerning an Anne Mackey who had lived at Pancake House in the 1940s. Although the name wrang bells, Barbara couldn't remember why. Fortunately, this information was contained in the already entered items on the spreadsheet and she was able to locate it for the enquirer in a matter of minutes and let her know. 

At the time of writing, there are 17 albums not yet entered in the spreadsheet, plus all the Press-cutting albums.  I have one very willing volunteer, but a couple more volunteers would lighten the load considerably.

IF YOU ARE WILLING TO HELP - EVEN IF ONLY FOR ONE ALBUM -

THEN PLEASE CONTACT BARBARA.

either:

a) via email if you already have Barbara's email address

b) via Facebook Messenger

c) via the CONTACT ME form on her website: http://www.lgchronicle.net/CONTACTPAGE.html

 

 

NB RE SOCIETY NOTES 1-6

Bravesite's software does not allow the uploading of more than 30 documents.  Therefore in order to post Society Notes 41 & 42 and any further documents,   I have deleted early Society Notes from the Society Notes page. Should anyone wish sight of these documents please contact our secretary Roy Wood who will either forward them on to you, or forward your email to me and I will send you a copy.  

 

My apologies for the necessity.
