Historic documents cataloguing appeal raises £2,455

The society’s recent appeal for funds to complete the cataloguing of the BAS deeds collection of over 11,000 documents has raised £2,455 – and we will be able to add to this by reclaiming tax under the Gift Aid scheme.

So thanks are due to all who have donated. The fund will be sent to the Bucks Records Society, who are funding the work at Buckinghamshire Archive. The new catalogue will make the document collection accessible for research.
