We recently launched an appeal for funds to complete the cataloguing of the BAS deeds collection of over 11,000 documents, an important resource for the history of people and places in Bucks. Having had a good initial response we are currently are 38% towards our target of £4250.
The complete professional cataloguing of these documents will be a major boost to the ability to remotely search this very large collection which includes documents from all except 20 of the 247 historic parishes in Bucks. If you are a local historian, a genealogist, or a student of the people or places in Bucks this will be of benefit to you.
Members can book now to come on our new series of excursions to a wide variety of locations. Also available is our ever popular Church Crawl. A full list and description of each excursion and a booking form has been added to this site.
Records of Bucks (volume 59) includes articles on newly-discovered Romanesque wall painting at St Mary’s Church, Old Linslade, the effects of the Wars of the Roses on Chesham, and Marlow’s medieval manor hall.
At the Society’s AGM held on 11th May 2019 Julian Hunt (left) was elected as President of the Bucks Archaeological Society, taking over from Dr Richard Gem (right) who retired after serving as President since 2008. The members thanked Richard for his service to the Society and to the heritage of Buckinghamshire and his wise advice to Council during his Presidency.
Added a couple of menu items under membership to separate new users from members who are renewing. as part of this I have attached a template for a standing order mandate. I cannot find one on the existing site, if there is can you point it out to me please.
Changed the left most “Things We Do” on the home page (the one with a picture of the library) to be about the Resources we have and are available both on line and in person. The wording can be improved and expanded and links added so please do so. But I think that the message is correct. –Look at the stuff we have for you-.
