Name Index

Originally a card index of family names and references compiled from various sources, now transformed by a Museum Volunteer into a single, searchable document. You can search the Name Index by opening it and using the 'Ctrl+F' find function. Many first names are abbreviated in the original sources, e.g. Chas for Charles, or Wm for William. The most common abbreviations are explained in the 'Name Index Help' document here. All the information that we have available was transcribed onto the cards and then onto this document - there are no further details held at the History Centre. It was initially compiled as an in-house tool for staff, so please contact us if you need help understanding the references and abbreviations. The 'Name Index Help' document here gives full versions of most of the abbreviations that are used, e.g. QSF = Quarter Sessions Felonies.
