Have just completed index for this paper of BMD Notices, plus Engagements, Obituaries, major Birthdays, Wedding Anniversaries.
4000 names and this did not include associated names mentioned. Amazing how at a wedding or 21st the reporter would note down everyone that attended, songs, MC, whay people wore, etc...
What is most interesting is the value placed on history and there were many excellent historical articles - I have placed a copy of these in the PLACES or PEOPLES Folders at The Treasury.
A copy of the index is available at The Treasury along with a scrapbook of the relevent clippings.
A Copy of the index is also available at the Thames Library, where the appropriate issue of the Thames Star paper can be viewed.
