Earlier today we released 10 new UK projects! There are 9 Warwickshire, England, Occupational and Quarter Session Records projects, Boat Owners and Voter Lists, Flax Bounty Lists, Freeholders Lists and Church Warden Account Books, Freemasons Lists, Game Keepers, Hair Powder Certificates, Jurors Lists, Printing Press Owners, & Tax Return Lists, and the Dorset Militia Lists, 1757-1799.
My favorite is the Hair Powder Certificates – I just find humor in the fact that people had to pay taxes on their purchase of hair powder. (I am sure the people paying taxes didn’t think it was humorous at all.) I have keyed all of the projects and enjoyed them all. These are simple, straight forward projects and they are smaller collections – so make sure to jump in and download a few image sets but leave a few for your fellow contributors too. 🙂
