Hi I have recnetly begun a new post, First World War in Tower Hamlets Project Co-ordinator and am looking for volunteers to help with research and indexing a fascinating source, The Poplar Military Tribunal Register with 3,500 entries of men seeking exemption from service. Please see below and contact me if interested.
Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives needs you!
We are seeking 10 volunteers to participate in this project with availability between June and September. Tasks include creating a digital name & address index for the military tribunal register enabling its listings to be searched via computer; assisting with the planning and delivery of the public events programme taking place in August, and researching aspects of life on the home front here in the Tower Hamlets to inform the exhibition. Volunteers will be supervised by newly appointed Project Co-ordinator Gary Haines. Please express your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 7364 1290, by the end of May if possible. Thanks!
I wonder how your reading group is progressing. I would love to join.
