The Calderdale Reference Library have now completed their mammoth task of transcribing nearly 400,000 BMD notices from the Halifax Guardian newspaper, from 1832 to 1921. These are now available on the Library website www.calderdale.gov.uk.
In addition, they are now also on our Society’s Transcription Index, so any member who is logged on with their membership username can request a transcription, free of charge. This will list all the names, and their relationships, one to another, of the people featuring in the newspaper notice.
This is a major new source of information for the 2nd half of the 19th century & the start of the 20th.
