We have many changes to come on over the next few months from Calendar’s to Photo Albums, to Family Tree software, to Family & Friend inclusion and we would love your feedback and interaction.


The records can be searched by name and browsed by using the Previous and Next page viewing tools on the viewer.

Due to the age of the records these have been scanned and the images of the original printed pages have been made word searchable using OCR which is the recognition of printed or written text characters by a computer.
