November 2012 : Updates to CDs from Heritage Digital Archives

Heritage Digital Archives (Dave Quigley) has commenced transcribing the 1911 Census returns for the Isle of Wight.

Dave writes :

The sub-districts so far completed are 1 (Cowes, East Cowes & surrounding areas), 3 Ryde (Binstead, Ryde, St Helens etc) and 6 Calbourne (in effect entire West Wight). I still have some checking /proof reading to do on the Ryde one. Until I eventually complete the whole Island I will supply direct for £3.50 post free per sub district or £6.00 for all 3 on a single CD.

Please contact Dave Quigley direct, if you wish to buy any of these - e-mail Heritage Digital Archives

December 2011 : IWFHS Journals 1 - 100 now available on CD-ROM

We have prepared a complete set of our Journals 1 - 100 as searchable PDF files. The CD-ROM also includes comprehensive Indexes. They are available on CD-ROM at a price of £15 plus postage & packing. This is a great opportunity to revisit the many articles and research topics prepared by our members in the first 25 years of the Society.

The Archive is also available online to Members only - see Journal Back Issues

CDR59 The Electoral Roll for the Isle of Wight (Spring 1938)
CDR58 The Electoral Roll for the Isle of Wight (Spring 1947)

all published with the permission of The Isle of Wight Record Office.

These are searchable Indexes to, and scanned copies of, the Electoral Rolls compiled in these years for all the Parliamentary and Local Registration Districts of the Isle of Wight. As such it represents a simple way of finding your ancestors in these years. Women over 30 were allowed to vote from 1920, and those over 21 from 1928, and therefore their names also appear, together with any adult children also entitled to vote.

The IW Record Office and the IWFHS Resource Centre also have copies of the CDs for reference purposes.

Heritage Digital Archives has permission to continue the scanning process for later Electoral Rolls, and these will be issued in due course.

The price for each of these is GBP10.00 (P&P extra).

Note the CDR reference number carefully as the CDs are listed chronologically, not by the CDR number.
