Records of Bucks volume 11 now on-line
1 October 2010
The first back volume of Records of Buckinghamshire, the society’s annual journal, became available on-line on 1 October.
The on-line version of Records volume 11, which was originally published in six parts between 1919 and 1926, is the first in a rolling programme of on-line publishing which will eventually put all back numbers of the journal on-line, making our accumulated knowledge of the county available worldwide. The society aims to publish on-line a new volume every six months, giving priority to those that are out-of-print.
On-line Records 11 is available from this website both directly from the Articles Index, where there is a full list of all its contents, and indirectly through the searchable Subject Index.
